The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival ushers in the promise of warmer weather at Walt Disney World with its annual spring display topiaries, gardens and landscaping. And part of the festival’s outdoor fun is the Flower Power Concerts.
Flower Power Concerts offer musical performances, free with Epcot admission, that feature the music of the 1960s, 1970s and 1970s. The concerts cover a variety of musical genres, including pop, rock and soul. The free concert series adds new acts on March 7, in time for Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival’s first weekend.
Several Flower Power names return to this 2014 lineup, including the Village People who debuted in 2013. The two new acts for this season are Gary Lewis and the Playboys (known for “This Diamond Ring”) and the Alan Parsons Live Project (“Eye In The Sky”).
Flower Power performances are held at America Gardens Theatre, located at the American Adventure pavilion in Epcot World Showcase. Concerts are held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the run of the festival, with artists taking to the stage three times each night: 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 8 p.m. for approximately 30 minutes each.
The 2014 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival runs from March 5 through May 18. For more information, visit Epcot in Spring.
