Kenny Chesney to Headline Tortuga Music Festival for 5th Year!

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney will return for the third time to headline 2017’s Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival. Chesney chose Tortuga as one of only a handful of concert dates the man – who just sold more than 121,000 tickets at Foxborough, Mass.’s Gillette Stadium and 56,000 at MetLife Stadium— will perform in 2017. Country music’s biggest beach party will celebrate its fifth year Friday, April 7th, Saturday, April 8th and Sunday, April 9th, 2017 on the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Anticipation for the fifth annual Tortuga Music Festival is building as Early Bird Tickets sold-out in a record 45 minutes and Advance Tickets in just two days, all before announcing any of the performers joining for three days of sun, song, sand and surf in Fort Lauderdale. Regular tickets are available now at a rate of $229 for three-day General Admission and $999 for three-day VIP passes (shipping and handling fees may apply to each ticket type). Regular priced three-day Super VIP passes can be purchased for $1,499 per person. Payment plans and travel packages will be available Wednesday, Sept 14th, at 10am EDT. Visit TortugaMusicFestival.com or call 877-987-6487 to confirm tickets and make plans to hit the beach in 2017.

Additionally, Tortuga fans will have the opportunity this year to upgrade their tickets daily to get guaranteed front stage access to a new area in front of the Main Stage called “The Reef.”

“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 remainder 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.
