Park: Universal Studios Florida

  • January 27 to 28, 2023

Universal Orlando bills Rock The Universe, its annual weekend of roller coasters and fist-pumping praise rock, as "Florida's biggest Christian music festival." This hard-ticket after-hours event attracts hordes of surprisingly rowdy church youth groups, who get access to the parks starting at 4 p.m., and keep boogieing for the Lord until 1 a.m.

Concerts take place across three stages inside Universal Studios Florida, and start after the park closes to day guests at 6 p.m. Most of the park's top attractions (except Diagon Alley) operate during Rock the Universe, and Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit is reprogrammed with Christian rock songs. There's also a Saturday night candlelighting ceremony, and a Sunday morning worship service in the Fear Factor Live stadium (we always pray at that show). Learn more at Universal's Rock the Universe page.

In 2022, the event will be Friday, January 28 and Saturday, January 29. The scheduled acts are:

    Friday, January 28:
  • for KING & COUNTRY
  • Matthew West
  • Rhett Walker
  • Jordan Feliz
  • Riley Clemmons
    Saturday, January 29:
  • Casting Crowns
  • Zach Williams
  • We the Kingdom
  • Big Daddy Weave
  • Cory Asbury of Bethel Music
  • Social Club Misfits
