Mardi Gras Live Concerts

An Attraction in Universal Studios Florida

Last updated: February 24, 2024

This attraction is open seasonally.
At a Glance

On select Mardi Gras event nights, after the parade concludes (approximately 45 minutes after step off), a big-name concert kicks off on the Music Plaza Stage near Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster. The concerts are a definite highlight of Universal’s Mardi Gras celebration. With great musical acts entertaining the crowd at no extra cost, there is really no downside to these fantastic concerts, other than the extraordinary crowds popular artists can draw.

To get an idea of the quality of the acts, performers in recent years have included heavyweights from the past -- Diana Ross, Kool & The Gang, REO Speedwagon, Huey Lewis and the News, Styx -- and present, such as Fall Out Boy, Adam Lambert, Jessie J, Yandel, Hunter Hayes, and T-Pain.

In addition to the headliners, Universal also has as small stage near in the French Quarter food stalls, where authentic New Orleans musicians play zydeco and blues before the big show.

The 2024 schedule (which is always subject to change) includes:

February 3 (Sat)Walker Hayes February 10 (Sat)The All-American Rejects February 17 (Sat)Nessa Barrett February 18 (Sun)KC and the Sunshine Band February 24 (Sat)Barenaked Ladies March 2 (Sat)DJ Khaled March 9 (Sat)Ava Max March 10 (Sun)Queen Latifah March 16 (Sat)Luis Fonsi March 17 (Sun)Zedd

Shows usually start at 8:30 pm, but see our Universal Studios Florida Showtimes page for specific times. Note that showtimes may not be released until very close to the show date and that they may change, so verify the start time once you get to the park.

Touring Tips

Early Park Admission?
No
The concerts are standing-room only and first-come/first-served; crowds can be enormous, and folks sometimes start lining up shortly after park opening for the hottest acts. There is no extra-cost VIP area available, but there is an ADA accessible viewing section near the restrooms on the New York side. Large video screens broadcast the stage to those standing in the far back, so consider watching from the New York Battery Park area if you aren't an uber-fan of the artist.
