Universal Orlando Resort Comes Alive for 2014 Mardi Gras Celebration with Star-Studded Line Up

Nelly+_Shot01_018_ret1 Resort comes alive this spring with its 2014 celebration, featuring 20 nights of electrifying concerts from the biggest names in music, coupled with the essence of the legendary Bayou bash.

On select nights Feb. 8 through May 31, guests will experience a “N’awlins”-inspired, family-friendly version of Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Florida. The celebration combines unmatched theme park entertainment with delectable Cajun cuisine, authentic New Orleans bands, an awe-inspiring parade and live concerts by some of today’s hottest artists.

This year’s powerhouse musical lineup features a diverse array of talent, from R&B superstar Robin Thicke, whose hit single “Blurred Lines” topped the Billboard chart for a near-record 12 weeks, to UK pop sensation The Wanted, who has sold nearly 10 million albums worldwide, to Latin idol Prince Royce, who reached number one on the U.S. Hot Latin Songs chart with “Corazon Sin Cara.” Also performing is rock band Daughtry, Grammy award-winning Hip Hop artist Nelly, and the classic rock group Foreigner, one of the best-selling bands of all time. For the complete line-up, see below.
Guests can also catch colorful beads by the handful during this year’s parade, which will feature 12 vibrant floats, including three new additions celebrating Jules Verne’s novel, “Around the World in Eighty Days.” All of the exquisitely detailed Mardi Gras floats are 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 ’s very own French Quarter Courtyard to enjoy authentic Cajun cuisine and see 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, where partygoers can also join Optimus Prime in the fight to save Earth on TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D or visit Springfield, home to The Simpsons, to take an intergalactic spin on Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl. With an upgraded park-to-park ticket, guests will have the opportunity to visit Universal Orlando’s second theme park, Islands of Adventure, and enjoy award-winning attractions like: The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk Coaster and more.
