2014 Epcot Sounds Like Summer concert series
(schedule subject to change)

Walt Disney World’s Epcot summer concert series runs from June 8 through the July 26, with acts performing several short concerts during each night of their run. All the 2012 Summer Like Summer acts return for this year’s series.

  • June 8 – 14: Hotel California ~ A Salute to the Eagles
  • June 15 – 21: Don’t Stop Believin’ ~ a Journey Tribute Band
  • June 22 – 28: Good Vibrations ~ A Tribute to The Beach Boys
  • June 29 – July 5: Don’t Look Back ~ The Boston Experience
  • July 6 –12: Stayin’ Alive ~ A Tribute to the Bee Gees
  • July 13 –19: Slippery When Wet ~ The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute

Concerts take place three times each night, at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. except for July 4. On Independence Day, Don’t Look Back ~ The Boston Experience will perform four times: 5:15 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7:45 p.m. and 9 p.m.

These concerts can be very popular.  Not only do the shows take place during Walt Disney World’s busy summer season, some returning acts have built a following of local fans while new performers attract regulars in search of variety.  Be aware that later shows, especially on the weekends, may be particularly crowded.

For these reasons, guests who are interested in seeing a particularly tribute band may wish to plan to see a performance earlier in the day.  Please plan on arriving at American Gardens Theatre well before a show’s start, as seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis.

Epcot’s Sounds Like Summer concert series are free, included with park admission to Epcot.

So sit back and relax, or get on your feet and dance to a collection of covers of the finest chart-topping icons the music industry has to offer!
