The 2016 Tortuga Music Festival lineup has so much star power, organizers have extended it from two days to three.
Dierks Bentley, Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton will headline the April 15th—17th event on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Joining them is an eclectic mix of country veterans and newcomers, rockers, soul singers and roots musicians. They include Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett, Billy Currington, Kip Moore, Cam, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Randy Houser, Joe Nichols, Chris Janson, A Thousand Horses, JJ Grey & Mofro, Elle King, Bobby Bones and the Raging Idiots, Chase Bryant and Old Dominion. Up-and-coming talent to take the stage will include LANco, Waterloo Revival, Native Run, Walker County, Tucker Beathard, Old Southern Moonshine Revival, Ryan Hurd, Courtney Cole and Drew Baldridge.
More than just non-stop music, Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival also sheds light on — and raises money for — ocean conservation. In past years, the event has collected more than $250,000 for marine and ocean research and conservation organizations.
Tickets for the 2016 Tortuga Music Festival go on sale this Friday, October 16th at www.tortugamusicfestival.com. Last year’s festivities saw a sold-out crowd of more than 75,000.
