The 2023 Heart & Soul Music Festival To Allow Personal Coolers & Unopened Bottled Water

ORLANDO – The Heart and Soul Music Festival Committee is excited to announce a new policy for the upcoming 2023 Heart & Soul Music Festival. After listening to valuable feedback from our attendees, we are delighted to inform you that personal size coolers, no larger than 7 quarts, and unopened bottled water will be permitted at the festival.

The festival will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2023, at the breathtaking Apopka Amphitheater. We understand the importance of staying hydrated and comfortable during an event of this magnitude, and we believe that allowing personal coolers and bottled water will greatly enhance the experience for all attendees.

To ensure the safety and security of everyone, all coolers (hard or soft) brought into the festival grounds will be subject to a thorough search by our dedicated security team before entry.

“The comfort and satisfaction of our valued festival-goers are always our top priorities,” said Paul Allen Billings, the Executive Producer of the Heart and Soul Music Festival. “We believe that allowing personal coolers and unopened bottled water will not only keep our attendees refreshed throughout the event but also create an even more enjoyable atmosphere.”

The 2023 Heart & Soul Music Festival has earned a reputation as the largest old school R&B festival in Central Florida. This year, we are proud to present an exceptional lineup of talent, including three Grammy-nominated artists – Stephanie Mills, Atlantic Starr, Lakeside, Kenny Lattimore, and Raheem Devaughn. VIP tickets have already been sold out, but reserved seats under the canopy are still available for those seeking an extraordinary viewing experience.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements about the upcoming festival. For additional information about the 2023 Heart & Soul Music Festival, please visit
