Tortuga is off to the races!!
Fort Lauderdale, FL – February 2, 2016 – Huka Entertainment is pleased to announce Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, now a three-day event, has added even more amazing performers to its already stellar music line-up. Joining country superstar headliners Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley will be: Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2015 and rising star Kelsea Ballerini, innovators of deep southern soul St. Paul & the Broken Bones, high-energy, straight country honky-tonker Jon Pardi, Kristian Bush, whose debut solo album was dubbed by Country Weekly as the “feel-good album of the year” and the beautiful duo Muddy Magnolias who Elle Magazine described as a “country, soul, and R&B cocktail that’s heavy on harmony and candid, occasionally gritty, lyrics.”
There is no official festival parking at the festival, so we encourage everyone to take a water taxi or shuttle to the festival.
The Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi is the exclusive water transportation provider for the 2016 Tortuga Music Festival. For detailed information on where to board the Water Taxis and hours of operation and to purchase Single Day and 3 Day water transportation tickets click here!
