Universal Orlando’s Rock the Universe is returning to the Orlando theme park early next year. The Christian Music Festival typically takes over the park in September but in 2019 guests will get the chance to listen to their favorite Christian artists sooner when the festival arrives February 1 & 2. With only a few short months to plan, we’ve compiled a list of the top things to do at Rock the Universe:

The Concerts
Rock the Universe is a full-on concert experience! Visitors will be able to listen to music from some of the biggest Christian artists at several stages spread throughout the park. Make sure you grab an event map to plan out where your favorite artists and bands will be performing. Then get ready to rock!

The Coca-Cola Fan Zone
To further enhance your weekend, make sure you hang with the stars of the concert at the Coca-Cola Fan Zone. Here you can enjoy a live DJ, dancing and even autograph sessions. You will also be introduced to up-and-coming Christian artists.

Exciting Rides
Your Rock the Universe admission also gives you access to some of Universal Orlando’s top thrill rides. In between concerts, make sure you catch a ride on some of the park’s most popular attractions like Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit and Revenge of the Mummy. This is usually a perfect time to take advantage of riding a few times since everybody is occupied at the concerts. Take advantage.

Saturday Candlelight Ceremony
For an extra special experience, stick around Saturday night for the candlelight ceremony at the Music Plaza Stage. The ceremony will include a special message and live music from one of the headlining acts.

Sunday Morning Service
The weekend ends with a Sunday morning worship service. This experience is included in your admission but space is limited so you are encouraged to sign up in advance.

Here is the full lineup of headlining artists for next year:
Friday, Feb. 1
Matthew West
Big Daddy Weave
Colton Dixon
Matt Mahar
Rhett Walker Band

Saturday, Feb. 2
Bethel Music
Francesca Battistelli
