Universal Orlando’s Grad Bash 2012 is Orlando’s only high school graduation event where graduates can celebrate with exclusive access to two world-class theme parks, street entertainment and live performances by some of today’s most popular musical artists.

 This year’s talent lineup features Reggaeton rapper Pitbull, who has scored four Top 10 singles including his most recent smash hit, “Give Me Everything;” and DJ Khaled who has topped the Billboard Rap Charts with his single, “I’m On One.” Together, these unstoppable artists lay claim to 9 platinum and multi-platinum singles. High school graduates can enjoy these live performances on the Music Plaza Stage at Universal Studios Florida on April 20, 21, 27 and 28, and May 4.

Students also get late-night access to pulse-pounding rides and attractions at both Universal Studios and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. They can soar above Hogwarts on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, speed through darkness on Revenge of the Mummy and rock out at 65 mph on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. Concerts will be held on the Music Plaza Stage at Universal Studios Florida on April 20, 21, 27, 28; May 4, from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.

High schools that book their spot at Universal Orlando’s Grad Bash by Oct. 1 receive a $5 discount per student ticket. High school seniors can purchase tickets from their senior advisor.
