Tortuga Music Festival, produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment best known for their unique destination-location music festivals, features multiple stages with unparalleled VIP amenities including a swimming pool, viewing decks and cabanas— all set with the ocean as a backdrop. Last year’s festival drew a record-breaking attendance of more than 90,000 fans from all over the world. Right in the center of the festivities is Rock The Ocean’s Conservation Village which educates and raises 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.
