Universal will be bringing back their big Mardi Gras celebrations starting in February, complete with a massive, just-unveiled lineup to bands and performers to really get the party started.

This year's musical roster has some very surprising names, with a little something for the youngs (Marshmello, Khalid), olds (Diana Ross, Styx) and even those right in the middle (LL Cool J, Sugar Ray). All performances will happen at the Music Plaza stage, right near the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit coaster.

Here's the full lineup:

Feb. 5: Sugar Ray
Febr. 12: Diana Ross
Feb. 19: Barenaked Ladies
Feb. 20: Styx
Feb. 26: Jon Pardi
March 5: LL Cool J featuring DJ Z-Trip
March 6: Marshmello
March 12: Lee Brice
March 13: Becky G
March 18: Khalid
March 19: Seal
March 20: Gavin DeGraw
March 25: The Revivalists
March 26: Jimmie Allen
March 27: Jason Derulo

Mardi Gras revelry will run from  Feb. 5-April 24 and will also include a Mardi Gras parade (on select dates), international cuisine with tastes from around the world and even a Mardi Gras-themed tribute store.

Mardi Gras events are covered in regular theme park admission to Universal Orlando.
