The Flower Power concert series that is part of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is a crowd favorite bringing many guests to the park to relive some great times enjoying the music of their favorite bands and stars. The Flower Power concert series runs March 5-May 18 with a lineup that will feature two new-to-the-festival-acts: Gary Lewis and The Playboys (“This Diamond Ring”) and Alan Parsons Live Project (“Eye in the Sky”).
An eclectic mix of festival-fan favorites includes Village People (“Y.M.C.A.”), who debuted for the Flower Power series in 2013, Paul Revere & The Raiders (“Good Thing”) and more. The Guess Who kick off the concert series March 7-9. Last year I caught Starship featuring Mickey Thomas (“We Built This City”) and really enjoyed the show. I’ve also really enjoyed Chubby Checker in previous years.
Here is this year’s lineup (subject to change without notice):
March 7-9 — The Guess Who “American Woman”
March 14-16 — NEW! Gary Lewis and The Playboys “This Diamond Ring”
