One of the most popular events at Walt Disney World is the annual Night of Joy weekend, and the headliner talent has just been announced.
New this year, the concerts will take place at indoor and outdoor venues at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, instead of at Magic Kingdom. Guests will have ticket options allowing theme park entry, as well.
Christian and Gospel music fans will come together to celebrate the 31st edition of Walt Disney World’s Night of Joy music festival the weekend of September 6-7, 2013.
For the first time, Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith will team up together for a performance, as well as perform separate sets. Returning favorites include MercyMe, TobyMac, Skillet, and Newsboys.
The full line-up for the two nights is:
Friday, September 6: Mercy Me, Steven Curtis Chapman & Michael W. Smith, Skillet, Mandisa, Audio Adrenaline, For King and Country, Moriah Peters, We As Human and City Harbor
Saturday, September 7: TobyMac, Francesca Batistelli, Newsboys, Matthew West, Group 1 Crew, Building 429, Plumb and Jamie Grace
The event takes place at Magic Kingdom, so attendees can enjoy the park attractions during the evenings.
One-day tickets to Disney’s Night of Joy are $55 plus tax in advance and $65 plus tax the night of the show (if available). Two-night tickets are $99 plus tax (advance purchase only) and group discounts are also available.
