The sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach will be turned into our oceanfront festival grounds, making Tortuga Fest a music and ocean lover’s paradise. Fans will enjoy music performances with the sun and stars above, an ocean breeze in the air, and sand under their feet. Local culinary fair, sustainable seafood as well as traditional festival favorites will be served.
In partnership with Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and Ocean Conservancy, a one-of-a-kind Conservation Village will be located on site to educate audience members and provide them with the information and tools they need to help preserve the world’s oceans.
Festival creators Rock The Ocean and HUKA Entertainment are partnering with the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. RTO founder, Chris Stacey said, “in addition to being a world-renowned artist, Dr. Guy Harvey is a world-class conservationist. Our team is great at creating amazing concert experiences, and Guy and his team know how to help save the world's oceans.”
“This is not your average music festival,” stated producer AJ Niland. “This festival will showcase world-class talent, with world-class amenities on a world-class beachfront setting. More importantly, it is a festival with a purpose.”
“Live music and the beachfront are rooted in the Landshark lifestyle,” said Michael Lourie, Landshark Lager brand manager. “In teaming up with Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, we’re excited to showcase a weekend of great music while we raise awareness about the collective responsibility we have to care for our coastlines.”
