EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival is a much-anticipated event at Walt Disney World. Each year the event takes Guests on a journey filled with food and discovery inside of EPCOT.

Typically, this event hosts the Eat to the Beat concert series, which features famous bands and artists that perform as part of the Food and Wine Festival. This year, however, Disney has confirmed Eat to the Beat will not be returning — But something new is coming!

Today, in a post by Disney Parks Blog we received more details about what Guests can look forwards to at the 2021 International Food and Wine Festival presented by Corkcicle. Unfortunately, while Eat to the Beat will not be returning this year, it appears that there will still be plenty of music at the Festival:

…with performances by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and Jammin’ Chefs. The festival will also open with America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare, a live-music concert series performed Friday through Monday evenings. Local bands from across Central Florida will take to the America Gardens Theatre stage, playing popular songs of yesterday and today.

We look forward to hearing the music at the new America Gardens Bandstand concert series as it will continue the tradition of live music during the Food and Wine Festival.
