HUKA Entertainment, leading creator and producer of large scale destination-location music festivals, proudly celebrates the return of Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival for its record-breaking fifth year. This one of a kind biggest 3-day country music beach party will take place Friday, April 7, Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9, 2017 -- on the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Tortuga Music Festival, produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment, features multiple stages with unparalleled VIP amenities for viewing more than thirty 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 $300,000.00 has been raised to support these efforts.

“With our expansion last year to three days, our fans showed how excited they were to get an extra day of Tortuga time on the beach,” says HUKA Entertainment Chief Experience Officer A.J. Niland, “We’ve had a unanimously tremendous response from the artists, fans and community expressing what a unique and special event Tortuga has become. More than 90,000 fans attended last year. And we know our fifth year will be even better!”

Though the list of performers will remain under wraps for the time being, Niland promises that the 2017 line-up will be: “our strongest one yet!” Fans can expect the same caliber of talent and outstanding headliners to hit the beach at Tortuga as in previous years, which have featured the likes of Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, Jake Owen, Hank Williams, Jr., The Doobie Brothers, Billy Currington, Kelsea Ballerini, Sheryl Crow, Brett Eldredge, Ziggy Marley, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Lynryd Skynyrd, Elle King, Frankie Ballard and many, many more.

This year's Conservation Village, which will again be curated by Rock The Ocean’s Chris Stacey, will play host to more than a dozen organizations dedicated to marine research and conservation, and will provide interactive, educational experiences for festival patrons.

Additionally, festivalgoers will again be encouraged to collect waste at the event site to minimize the festival’s impact on the environment, as in previous years, when fans were rewarded for their efforts with various premiums given in exchange for collected trash.
