There are some great musicians coming to Central Florida! If you are visiting, or live here, and are planning to go to either Busch Gardens or SeaWorld, try to plan your theme park attraction visit around one of the live music concerts being offered as part of the regular admission costs. There is a wide variety of music genres being offered, so you’re bound to find one that you just have to see.

Both theme parks are hosting the annual “Bands, Brew and BBQ” event which takes place in February and March. Busch Gardens is also offering the “Real Music” concert series during this time as well. These performances are held at the park’s Stanleyville Theater three times a day – 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. The performances for “Bands, Brew and BBQ” for Busch Gardens will take place at Gwazi Field. Event information for Busch Garden’s “Bands, Brew and BBQ” can be found here. Sea World’s “Bands, Brew and BBQ” concerts are held within the park with limited seating capacity on a first-come, first-served basis. SeaWorld’s beer garden will feature nearly 50 craft beers from around 20 different domestic and international breweries. Food and beverages at this special event cost extra, and VIP passes with meal vouchers and front-of-the-line benefits are available. Information for SeaWorld’s event can be found here.
