The Tortuga Music Festival promises a lot more country on the beach in 2017. Only in its fifth year, the massive waterside festival in Ft. Lauderdale will include Luke Bryan and Chris Stapleton as headliners alongside Kenny Chesney next year.
Bryan and Stapleton join a lineup already stacked with names like Brett Eldredge, Darius Rucker, Maren Morris, Granger Smith, Old Dominion and more. While the lineup heavily favors country acts, rapper Nelly will also be performing.
Besides throwing one helluva country party on the beach, the festival focuses its efforts on raising money for marine research and conservation by partnering with the Rock The Ocean Foundation. Thus far, the festival has raised over $300,000.
Last year, the festival drew an impressive 90,000 attendees with more slated to arrive this year. Fans can purchase three day general admission and VIP passes at Tortuga Music Festival’s website. The festival will take place April 7-9.
