Disney Parks Blog has announced additional details about Disney Night of Joy, a Christian music event that takes place at Walt Disney World. Night of Joy will occur on Friday, September 8th and Saturday, September 9th featuring 15 popular Christian bands in a concert. The event will take place at ESPN Wide World of Sports. It used to take place at Magic Kingdom, but has since been moved to the Wide World of Sports location. This is the 35th year of the event, and Disney Parks Blog is extremely excited about the musical line-up that is scheduled for the event.
Here is the line-up of performances for each evening:
- Friday, Sept. 8: MercyMe, TobyMac, Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey, Matt Maher, Colton Dixon, Rend Collective, Zach Williams.
- Saturday, Sept. 9: Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman, Kirk Franklin, Jordan Feliz, Crowder, Jeremy Camp, Tye Tribbett.
- Per Disney Parks Blog, it looks like Amy Grant and Steven Curtis Chapman may perform a couple songs together, too!
Matthew West, Christian songwriter and musician, has been confirmed at the host for both evenings of the event. He will introduce each of the artist and keep the event lively and exciting.
Tickets for the event will go on sale in early June. As always we will keep you posted as we learn more and update all of the details here.
