    Feb 2018 will be my first Mardi Gras. Can anyone advise on whether there any perks/benefits to being an annual pass holder for this?
    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for resurrecting an old topic, but I figured I'd post this here. A couple weeks ago, I was looking at The Beach Boys' Web site, and saw they had an interesting tour date:

    2/10/18 - Orlando, FL - Universal Studios Music Plaza Stage

    Just checked this morning, and the date has been removed from their site. I'm not sure if they're no longer appearing at Mardi Gras, or if they were not supposed to announce anything yet. But, there's a strong possibility The Beach Boys are the first act to be unofficially announced for the event.

    Any rumors about the lineup this year? It'll show up any day now.

    Honest question: Is John Stamos still touring with The Beach Boys or no?

    Definitely been worse years. Like last year. Last year was the worst.

    Pretty solid overall.

    When you have to Google three quarters of this list, you know your lineup sucks.

    Three quarters? Really? The Beach Boys, Andy Grammer, Macklemore, 311, Foreigner, Fifth Harmony and Bush are/were all huge acts and are pretty well known, no?

    Really solid lineup this year. I'd be interested in seeing nearly all of it.

    Macklemore is great in concert, saw him at the Dr. Phillips Center in 2016. I'll definitely be there for that.

    Otherwise... I like a lot of the rest of the artists but not a big enough fan to say i'd definitely go. Probably go during 5H just to see the craziness of it and maybe see Andy Grammer.
