Rock the Universe 2023 dates set – Orlando Sentinel

Universal Orlando has set the dates for the 2023 edition of Rock the Universe, its Christian-music festival at Universal Studios. It has not yet announced the singers that will be in concert.

Rock the Universe will be held Jan. 27-29, 2023, the resort says. There will be six headlining performers each on Friday and Saturday nights at the theme park’s Music Plaza Stage and Hollywood Stage.

The event also includes performances from other acts in the FanZone area as well as a Sunday morning worship service.

Among the singers in the 2022 lineup were Casting Crowns, Matthew West, Rhett Walker, Crowder, We the Kingdom and For King and Country. But the acts were completely different for the 2020 event. (Rock the Universe was not held in 2021 due to the pandemic.)

Rock the Universe, which began in 1998, is a separately ticketed event held after regular park hours, although some attractions remain running into the night. Pricing, including packages that include daytime theme-park admission, has not been announced.
