Walt Disney World’s 31st Night of Joy features multiple Grammy and Dove Award-winning artists in its 2013 lineup. The two-night celebration is staged each year during the second weekend in September. This year’s event will be on September 6 -7, 2013.
Friday night brings Christian music legends Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman together for a combined set on the Cinderella Castle stage. Smith and Chapman performed a European United Tour this past spring after a successful combined tour in the United States in 2008. This is the first time two artists have been co-billed for a Night of Joy performance.
Highlights of this year’s Night of Joy include the addition of five first-time performers to the roster, including rising stars For King and Country and Jamie Grace. Fan favorites Mercy Me return for a sixth consecutive year. An unofficial dcTalk reunion takes place as tobyMac headlines the Saturday night lineup, Michael Tait performs with Newsboys, and Kevin Max appears as the lead singer in the newly configured Audio Adrenaline.
