We’re still a few months off from the start of the 21st Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, but Walt Disney World has released the line-up for this year’s Eat to the Beat concert series.
The line-up is a great mix of 80s and 90s superstars. There are a lot of returning favorites, but there are also eight new ones playing the fest this year: Wang Chung, BoDeans, Plain White T’s, Jeffrey Osborne, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Living Colour, Soul Asylum, and Delta Rae.
Here is the complete line-up of artists scheduled to play the 2016 edition of the Eat to the Beat concert series:

It’s a bit of a drive from Orlando, but berry fans won’t want to miss this year’s Florida Strawberry Festival down in Plant City. This year’s event runs February 26 through March 8.
As the name implies, the strawberry is the main attraction at this fair. There are so many ways to enjoy this sweet treat at the fest, but diehards say you must do at least one shortcake version. Also, buy your flat of strawberries to take home from the vendors set up outside the fest. You’ll pay less.
The second reason to attend the Florida Strawberry Festival is the nightly headliner concerts. Admission is free for grandstand seating, but those are first-come, first-serve. If there is someone you really want to see, it’s worth it to pay for reserved seating.
Here is the line-up of this year’s headliners and reserved ticket prices:
Taking over an episode of The View last week, legendary pop artists New Kids on the Block announced they are headlining a Summer 2013 tour that will bring them to the Amway Center in Orlando on June 21.
“Ladies, we’re coming for you,” said NKOTB member Donnie Wahlberg. “This is going to be the craziest year yet-the single, the album, the tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men … We can’t wait to give fans ‘The Package!'”
NKOTB will release a new CD, called 10, on April 2, 2013. The first single, “Remix (I Like The),” will drop at the end of January.
Tickets for the show run $27.50 to $89.50 (plus fees/tax). However, the die-hard fan will want to purchase “The Total Package” VIP package, which includes a meet-and-greet with NKOTB, and one seat inside the security barricade (the stage design has seats built into the stage, so the show goes on around you). These tickets are $999. Steep but definitely a primo experience for a NKOTB fan. There is also a 98 Degree add-on VIP experience available, as well.
Tickets go on sale to the general public February 2, 2013. They are available online and at the Amway Center box office.
