Universal Studios Orlando is getting ready for Mardis Gras!
As usual, a dozen or more leading artists will take to the stage Music Plaza beneath the Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster for an evening of top class live music.
With headline artists, the free to regular admission guests is one of the highlights of the theme park live band calendars and always draws a lot of attention, offering a different feel entirely to the parks. Sure those amazing attractions are still beating away, but the surreal mixture of some of the best US artists playing live on stage seems almost seems rude to ignore!
If you love music, the Mardi Gras music lineup for the 2014 Mardi Gras is unmissable!

Something Fishy about 2014’s Mardi Gras Line Up!
Over the winter months of 2013/14, a little fuss surrounded the Barenaked Ladies. It seems that they were pushed by fans not to attend the SeaWorld Bands Brew & BBQ festival. Concerned by the Blackfish Movie, fans pushed the band into a corner.
The result? They pulled out of the SeaWorld concert series. Like a set of dominos, others followed, effectively leaving SeaWorld without a lineup.
Barenaked Ladies however, decided to appear instead at this year’s Mardi Gras.
Take to the Streets of Universal Studios – in a silent way!
It occurred to me that a kind of response would be cool for those of us that don’t like the fact that a minority had gathered against SeaWorld to alter people’s enjoyment.
Before I continue, I must make it clear, that SeaWorld need to keep improving their animal program, but as written in other posts, I value any organisation that works hard to raise awareness of our environment. SeaWorld isn’t perfect, but it is by far the biggest and best voice of awareness when it comes to protecting the ocean on a wider scale. A stronger SeaWorld will probably do more good than harm.
