    "Good" acts is completely subjective. I'd see 4-5 of these acts if I could.

    Thanks for answering this question. I guess what I'm trying to figure out is how long will the rides be open on a concert night. If the park closes at 9, but the concert starts at 9, I'm assuming the rides around the rest of the park will also be closed once the concert starts? And do they shut off the rest of the park during the concert? Or do the rides remain open, making this a really good time to ride with no lines since most people would be at the concert? I guess I'm assuming the concert starts when the park closes.

    Queues will be closed off at park closing time. That said, the parade will start an hour before the concert, so you'll have some time to do rides then while most of the crowd watches the parade and moves to the concert area.

    I really must say that there's only about 4-6 acts I want to see this year. So happy that they finally got Olivia Newton-John to perform at MG. I've been dying to see her live and she will put on a good show. Kelly is pretty major, I think!

    Looking forward to ONJ, Kelly, Heart, AAR, Band Perry and B-52's.

    EDM is a big genre missing.

    You'll never see EDM at Universal.

    B-52's were great last time, but man has the male lead singer aged. The real thing that stood out to me was how much stronger the back-up female singer has become, she was pretty impressive. AAR was really good last time they were there too, my step-daughters are pretty upset they can't go since it is during seasonal black out dates.

    I'm planning on being there for Jessie J, Barenaked Ladies (not to be missed!!!), Becky G, AAR, Styx (Come Sail Away and Mr Roboto... YES!), Olivia Newton-John (The girls just did Grease at school so they would probably dig her), and Kelly Clarkson.

    BriMan, mark my words Deadmaus is going to be there this year :-P I really hope he is at least

    Thank God. I wish it would die out already. Horrible.

    I know it's a longshot for it to make it to Universal, but it is a big, growing music genre that cannot be ignored.

    I could easily see David Guetta playing Mardi Gras.

    While it's grown the past decade, Universal isn't the place for it.

    I would love to see a big DJ at Universal like Guetta, Afrojack, Kaskade, Zedd. Ugh. That would be a blast.

    I've seen Zedd, DJ Carnage, Skrillex, and Guetta. Out of all the edm guys, Guetta is really the best fit for Universal. He really is a pretty solid crossover artist.

    Yeah, I can see Guetta being the exception.

    I'm so jealous of you...Guetta would certainly work..he is the more mainstream EDM artist...also Calvin Harris would be good

    I'm just hoping for it because I would love to see him, and last I heard he was extremely cranky with Disney.
