NE-YO, FIFTH HARMONY, TOBY KEITH, COLLECTIVE SOUL AND MORE TO PERFORM LIVE AT UNIVERSAL ORLANDO’S 2017 MARDI GRAS CELEBRATION
Universal Orlando Resort today announced the headliners taking the stage for the 2017 Mardi Gras celebration– a family-friendly version of the famed New Orleans bash that features Cajun-style cuisine, authentic New Orleans flare, a spectacular parade, and – on select nights – live concerts by a star-studded lineup of musical artists covering everything from pop and R&B to rock and disco.
Universal’s Mardi Gras 2017 will run daily from Feb. 4 through March 25 – giving guests 50 nights to join the celebration. For 12 select nights during the event, guests can enjoy performances by nationally-recognized musical acts including award winning-multiplatinum selling Fifth Harmony, three-time GRAMMY Award winner NE-YO, superstar singer-songwriter Toby Keith and rock band Collective Soul. For the complete line-up and performance schedule, see below.
The celebration also includes a uniquely themed nightly parade featuring festive Mardi Gras floats – complete with New Orleans-inspired music, dozens of colorful dancers and stilt performers, and more than one million beads. This year’s parade will feature six all-new Mythical Creatures Themed floats including, The Dance of the Dragon, The Flight of the Pegasus, and The Rise of the Garuda. All of the exquisitely detailed Mardi Gras floats are engineered by Blaine Kern Artists, the same company that has hand crafted floats for the iconic New Orleans celebration since 1947.
Guests can also enjoy authentic New Orleans-style cuisine at The French Quarter Courtyard and performances by bands pulled straight from Bourbon Street.
The excitement of Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras celebration is included with admission to Universal Studios Florida or with an Annual Pass. Florida Residents can get up to three months free on Power, Preferred and Premier Annual Passes with a Coca-Cola and Coke Zero UPC code or promo code on special marked packages.
