Smash Mouth and more Eat to the Beat Concerts at EpcotThe Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will begin taking guests on a culinary adventure around the world on September 28 and on through November 11. And while the annual foodie festival promises to offer plenty of delicious foods and savory beers and wines from some of the most exotic places on Earth, one of the highlights of the event actually has nothing to do with food! But don’t worry you might not be able to eat or drink it but it is still a great pairing to all of the indulgent dishes.

In addition to the delicious samples of tapas, desserts and drinks at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival guests will also be able to indulge in free nightly concerts called The Eat to the Beat Concerts. And just like the food at the festival there will be plenty of musical choices to entertain every member of your family. You can expect singers and superbands to range from 1980’s rock and alternative bands to Grammy Award winning artists, the winner of NBC’s first season of “The Voice” and many, many more.
