On select nights from Feb. 7 through April 18, guests can experience a family friendly version of the “N’awlins”-inspired festival at Universal Studios Florida. Guests can top off their day in the theme parks with Cajun cuisine, an awe-inspiring parade and a live concert.

This year’s concert lineup features an array of talent with something for everyone. Headliners include English pop sensation Jessie J, “American Idol” winner Kelly Clarkson, and reggaeton superstar Yandel. Also performing is R&B artist Trey Songz, award-winning American country group The Band Perry, and the rock group American Authors.
