Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Live! will be returning to Epcot's America Gardens Theater for summer 2020.

Disney is currently in the process of auditioning for performers for the 2020 show.

The show which debuted in 2018 features Star-Lord and Gamora in person as a 7-piece alien band brings many of your favorite hits from Awesome Mix Volumes 1 & 2 to life. 

The Story

After saving their world from certain destruction, Peter Quill—a.k.a. Star Lord—brokered a deal with Nova Prime and the Xandarian government to bring an outreach program to his home planet. The purpose? To share Xandar’s rich heritage and culture with Earth’s people.

As luck would have it, Peter informed Xandar’s leaders that there’s already a place on Earth with a similar mission… a theme park called Epcot, where all of Earth’s cultures are celebrated. So, as part of their first outreach, Xandar has sent some of their most talented performers to showcase their music!

I could share my thoughts on this, but as this is a family friendly board I will just be quiet. Marie

I'm surprised they're going with this, I expected some Frozen show since that money printer just got brought back to the forefront of people's minds with Frozen II

Agreed. Why was this torn down, I don't recall at the moment? I have many happy memories of the Christmas show in there!! Marie

This would be perfect in a theatre in Tomorrowland. If only they had one...

We caught this last summer. I was expecting it to be somewhere between "meh" and "horrible", but we actually really enjoyed the show. The performers were great.

I'm so happy the show is coming back!

Who’s looking forward to “BBQ and Awesome Rock Festival” during the summer months? All you have to do is keep the booths open, slap some hidden muppets around the lagoon, and introduce evening concerts with 80s and 90s cover bands. Sell a dining package to the Awesome Mix show. I like the actors used in this show. But the premise is paper thin and is no more worthy of the giant America Gardens amphitheater than any other musical act in any other country, in my opinion. I find it sad when I see the amphitheater so empty with performers really trying to sell the show. How good would a Disney Rocks show be with a live band, the Electric Mayhem, the Guardians, and Powerline from the Goofy Movie?

Yes. Marie

Can we all just agree this worked better than a Barbie show?

Help-wanted ad for a Star Lord and Gamora... obviously for a repeat of the show for this Summer of 2020... ping @wdwmagic

I’ll keep this quiet. I like this show more than Candlelight Processional.

Thank you for the great video!!! I was lucky enough to meet this gentleman last year at Disney Springs while watching Acoustic Edge, which features the guitarist in this video as well as two other people who are in this show that I know. He is a very nice guy and obviously mega- talented. I do agree on something with the vocals is off but I wasnt sure what it was. I'll be catching this show myself later on this summer. Marie
