Fans awaiting country music's biggest beach party, Tortuga Music Festival, featuring Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, and Chris Stapleton on April 7th - 9th, can now check out the full schedule and festival map on the official Tortuga Music Festival Mobile App. Available as a free download for both iOS and Android users, the app allows fans to create custom schedules, navigate the festival site, learn about the festival's partners and food vendors, and receive direct notifications regarding important information and festival activities.
New to the iOS app this year is an emoji keyboard that allows fans to send Tortuga-themed sticker
s via text messages. Additionally fans will be able to access a branded Tortuga Tunes stream and listen to all of their favorite artists playing the festival.
The Tortuga Mobile app will also educate fans about the festival cause and on-site Conservation Village and activities. Rock the Ocean's Conservation Village will feature more than 30 organizations, including the Guy Harvey Foundation, Sea Turtle Oversight Protection (S.T.O.P.), University of Miami, Bimini Biological Field Station Foundation, and Surfrider Foundation.
Conservation efforts led by Rock the Ocean and festival funding have helped plant more than 10,000 sea oats on the beach at the festival site, provide fuel for Bimini, and to tag the first shark in Asia. This year's Conservation Village will bring games, interactive touch tanks, cooking exhibitions, and the latest ocean technology to the festival so that fans can learn about ocean and marine life survival and understand how their actions make a difference.
Country superstars Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan and Chris Stapleton are headlining this year’s Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, highlighting what is the best line-up yet to celebrate its Fifth Year. Last year’s festival drew a record-breaking attendance of more than 90,000 music fans from all over the world, who enjoyed the endless sun, songs, sand and surf at a one-of-a-kind music at the beach event. The 2017 Tortuga Music Festival will take place Friday, April 7, Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9, 2017 on the sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park.
Tortuga Music Festival, produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment, features multiple stages with unparalleled VIP amenities for viewing some of the hottest and most unique artists in country, rock and roots music. The event serves to celebrate HUKA’s destination location theme with the festival’s ocean-side setting while still raising awareness of issues impacting the world’s oceans and supporting marine research and conservation, as well as protection of the festival’s namesake – sea turtles that nest annually along South Florida’s Atlantic seaboard. To this date more than $300,000 has been raised to support these efforts.
