Tortuga Music Festival

Location: Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Dates: April 7th - 9th
To quote the Zac Brown Band, it’s time for toes in the water and ass in the sand at the Tortuga Music Festival, celebrating its fifth year on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park. Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan and Chris Stapleton headline this edition, while the undercard includes Alan Jackson, Darius Rucker and Dustin Lynch. Watch performances from swimming pools, viewing decks and cabanas or do some good while getting your groove on: visit Rock the Ocean’s on-site Conservation Village, which raises awareness for marine research, including protecting the festival’s namesake sea turtles that nest on the South Florida coast.
