Mmmm … sweet, sweet music. After a (much too long) hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Food & Wine EPCOT concerts are back.
When we heard that the Garden Rocks Concert Series was returning for the 2022 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, we hoped that Eat to the Beat would follow suit.
Well, not only is the Eat to the Beat Concert Series back, it’s looking better than ever. You can enjoy dinner and a show nightly at the International Food & Wine Festival from July 14 to November 19, 2022.
Get a first look (more like first taste) of who’s serving up the tunes at this year’s Eat to the Beat Concert Series.
Who’s Playing the 2022 Eat to the Beat Concert Series?
Variety is the spice of life and this year’s musical performances offer something for everyone.
A vocalist from one of the most successful boy bands of all time? Check.
A world-famous drummer who played with music royalty? (A Prince you might say?) Got her.
A delicious sampling of eighties icons? Yup. They’re performing live too.
Then there are the acts that are what the Disney Parks Blog calls, “fresh-to-the-festival.” Check out the list to see who’s making their America Gardens Theatre stage debut this year.

Get Your Eat to the Beat Dining Package
Know what shows you want to see? Starting May 24, you can save your spot at the concert when you purchase an Eat to the Beat Dining Package.
You can also roll the dice on a same-day dining package if you’re feeling lucky. That means you can show up without reservations at either Spice Road Table or Regal Eagle Smokehouse and still get guaranteed seats to an Eat to the Beat concert.
(Note: Same-day dining packages may not be available on peak park days. That’s where planning with a crowd calendar comes in handy.)
There are six Eat to the Beat Dining Packages available for both lunch and dinner, Friday-Monday. Here’s what you get:
- A full buffet (where applicable) or an appetizer, entrée, dessert, and a non-alcoholic beverage
- A guaranteed seat for that day’s concert
