Mardi Gras season at Universal Studios is on the horizon. Last week I wrote an article that was a great overview of this fun event, so it was thrilling this week when Universal released the concert line-up for this year’s event! The concert lineup features an array of talent with something for everyone to enjoy. Chart topping celebrity singers along with a chance to see performances by bands pulled straight from Bourbon Street. On select nights Feb. 7 through April 18, guests will experience a family-friendly version of the “N’awlins”-inspired festival at Universal Studios Florida. Guests can top off their day in the theme parks with delicious Cajun cuisine, an awe-inspiring parade and a live concert.
If you plan to head to universal Studios for Mardi Gras you can see headliners like English pop sensation Jessie J, who’s known for her hits “Price Tag” and “Bang Bang,” “American Idol” winner Kelly Clarkson, who has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, and reggaeton superstar Yandel, who has had three songs reach the Top 10 Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart and a No. 1 album on the Top Latin Albums chart. Also performing is R&B artist Trey Songz, award-winning American country group The Band Perry, and the rock group American Authors, who’s single “Best Day of My Life” was named the No.1 most played song in 2014 on Adult Pop Radio.
Along with amazing music and food you will also have the opportunity to catch handfuls of colorful beads during this year’s rockin’ parade. The 12 exquisitely detailed Mardi Gras floats were engineered by Blaine Kern Artists, the same company that has been hand-crafting floats for the iconic New Orleans celebration since 1947. Plus, guests can visit Universal Studios Florida’s very own French Quarter Courtyard to enjoy authentic Cajun cuisine including Gumbo and New Orleans’ infamous Beignets, prepared fresh and hot.
This event has it all, from chart topping musical artists, to amazing food, parades and atmosphere – now is the time to plan your visit to Universal Studios Orlando.
