Kenny Chesney, Thomas Rhett and Jason Aldean will headline the three-day 2019 Tortuga Music Festival. The annual beachside event, which launched in 2013, is set for April 12 through 13th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Officially titled Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, the concert doubles as a conservation effort for the world’s oceans and marine life and hosts a special educational and interactive “conservation village.”
The draw, though, is the traditionally diverse lineup, one that strays far from any country boundaries. This year, that includes Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, eclectic songwriter Sheryl Crow, rapper Flo Rida, New Orleans brass master Trombone Shorty, and reggae icons the Wailers.
Maren Morris, Kane Brown, Midland, Chris Janson, Carly Pearce, Dustin Lynch and Lindsay Ell are among those representing country music, along with Danielle Bradbery, Delta Rae, Morgan Evans, Jillian Jacqueline, Cody Johnson, Maddie & Tae, David Lee Murphy, Cassadee Pope, RaeLynn, Michael Ray and Mitchell Tenpenny.
Last year’s lineup included such far-ranging acts as Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Dwight Yoakam, Shaggy, Snoop Dogg and Cheap Trick.
Three-day passes for Tortuga, which this year introduces a third “Next From Nashville” stage, go on sale October 26th.
Earlier this week, the Stagecoach Festival in California also announced its lineup: Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Sam Hunt are set to headline.
