    No Hispanic singer this year? That’s sad ? I always looked forward to the Spanish music!

    No classic rock band either. The lineup this year is a total flop and not worth going. Universals staff to arrange lineups has been going downhill the past 4 years and they need to hire people who can bring in real concert talent. I have been a passholder for more than 18 years and this lineup is the worst I have seen, EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!

    We are annual pass holders…. We are actually going the weekend of the 24th….. we will be there obviously on the 25th and my daughter looooves fifth harmony so it’s perfect! I just want to know exactly where they’ll be so she can see them. Is it inside Universal or at City walk? We want to be prepared?

    • amanda

      It is inside Universal! Be there by 6:30PM.

    It seems to me that you would want to please all the different age groups, but not the case this year at Madi Gras Universal. It’s okay, I’ll be there on the 5th of March to see Olivia Newton-John and to collect some BEADS!!! Lol!
