Rapper Pitbull and DJ Kahled will headline next spring’s Grad Bash, Universal Orlando announced Thursday. The five-night, extra-ticket event is designed for graduating seniors, giving them after-hours access to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Pitbull (“Give Me Everything”) and DJ Kahled (“I’m on One”) will perform April 20, 21, 27, 28 and May 4, 2012, on the Music Plaza stage at Universal Studios. Grad Bash also includes karaoke, dancing, street entertainment and live DJs from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Disney World cancelled its long-running Grad Nite event at Magic Kingdom, effective with the class of 2012. Since then, Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa has added a two-night Grad Nite promotion, which will take place on April 27 and 28.
Tickets can only be purchased by eligible students through their senior advisers. High school students that reserve spots by Oct. 1 receive a $5 discount per student ticket. For more information, go to www.UniversalOrlando.com/gradbash or call Universal group sales at 800-968-8415.
