ORLANDO, Fla. (August, 2011) - On September 9 and 10, Rock the Universe 2011 - Florida's biggest Christian music festival - will take place at Universal Orlando Resort. Guests will enjoy a faith-filled weekend featuring performances by 17 hit artists, an all-new fan zone, inspiring guest speakers, nightly candlelighting ceremonies, access to some of the world's best theme park experiences and more.

This year's sensational lineup features some of the biggest names in Christian rock, laying claim to a combined total of 71 Dove awards and 39 No. 1 singles. More than a dozen hit bands will take the stage, including Switchfoot - who was named "Best Christian Band" by the 2009 Top in Rock awards; Grammy award-winning group and Daytona Beach natives Casting Crowns; rock group Relient K who have sold more than two million albums; and Third Day who have topped the Christian music charts with 14 No. 1 singles. The full lineup is below.

In honor of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, this year's event features guest speakers who survived the attacks that day. Retired Navy Captain Tom Joyce, who survived the attack on the Pentagon, and Sujo John, who worked on the 81st Floor of the North Tower in New York City, will share their inspirational stories about how their faith helped guide them through that tragic time. Rock the Universe guests will also get to experience an all-new fan zone, featuring autograph sessions with performing acts, band merchandise, and a first-ever New Artists' Stage where they can enjoy live performances by three emerging artists: former American Idol contestant Jason Castro, for King & Country and Dara Maclean.

Plus, guests can enjoy the thrilling attractions found only at Universal Studios. They can rock out to hit songs at 65 mph on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, laugh along with America's favorite animated family on The Simpsons Ride and speed through darkness on the world's first psychological thrill ride - Revenge of the Mummy.

There are a variety of ticket options for Rock the Universe 2011. The best value is the "Rock Your Weekend" ticket, which includes admission to both nights of the event and three days' admission to both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. This ticket is only available until Sept. 2 and will not be sold at the front gate.
