HUKA Entertainment announced today a record year for the fourth annual Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, held over the weekend at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park. Nearly 90,000 fans flocked to the beach for three days of performances from superstars Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley, along with Sam Hunt, Elle King, Thomas Rhett, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kelsea Ballerini and 25 more musical acts!
What began as country music’s first large-scale festival on the beach, primarily attended by local fans, has grown to become the world’s dominant destination location event, drawing attendees from 47 states and 16 countries to Tortuga.
“HUKA is honored to produce large-scale, destination-location festivals – it’s the fierce loyalty of our Tortuga fans who allow us to raise the bar each year,” said HUKA Entertainment CEO, Evan Harrison.
A.J. Niland, HUKA Entertainment Chief Experience Officer adds, “with the fan response to this year’s enhancements like more shade, art installations, and better flow, my mind is already racing with innovative surprises for next year.”
Expanding to a third day in 2016 proved to be a massive win for Tortuga Music Festival, which has quickly become a permanent fixture within the extremely competitive music festival landscape. Plans are already underway for Tortuga’s 5th anniversary celebration, with more details to be revealed soon.
