44,000 Flock to Tortuga Music Festival


Over 44,000 attendees enjoyed sun, songs, and surf at the second annual Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival this weekend, which took place on the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park. Produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment and created with the Rock the Ocean Foundation, the event, now in its second year, featured 26 of music’s biggest acts over two days. Headliners Luke Bryan and Eric Church thrilled crowds, along with Hank Williams, Jr., Train, Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert, Sheryl Crow, Billy Currington, Slightly Stoopid, Ziggy Marley, 38 Special, Brett Eldredge, Parmalee, Cole Swindell, Brett Dennen, Delta Rae, Eric Paslay, Moon Taxi, The Revivalists, White Denim, Frankie Ballard, Chase Rice, Brothers Osborne, Blackjack Billy, Sons of Fathers, and Quaker City Night Hawks.


“We were looking to build on our amazing first year and raise the bar even higher,” says HUKA Entertainment co-founder and CEO A.J. Niland. “I think the growth in attendance at this year’s event proves we did just that, and have created one of the most singular and exciting musical events of 2014.”

It was two days of amazing music, which celebrated its oceanfront setting while raising awareness of issues impacting the world’s oceans and generating support for marine research and conservation. This year’s festival included a one-of-a-kind Guy Harvey Conservation Village on site, with nearly two-dozen organizations and exhibitions providing attendees with information and tools to help protect the world’s oceans and marine resources.

“Our partners in the Guy Harvey Conservation Village shared their passion for marine conservation with festival goers by providing hands-on exhibits, including planting sea oats, tasting lion fish dishes and tracking tagged sharks in real time,” says Rock The Ocean founder Chris Stacey. “It thrills me to know that so many people learned about saving our world’s waterways while enjoying two days of great music.”

Tortuga Music Festival partner CMT brought its popular “Hot 20 Countdown” and “CMT Radio” programs to the festival. Hosts Alecia Davis and Cody Alan will share exclusive coverage from the event as well as interviews from country’s biggest superstars. “Hot 20 Countdown” will air on Saturday 4/19 and Sunday 4/20 at 11am/10am central.

Luke Bryan is on FIRE right now!  Luke just finished co-hosting the ACM Awards for the second year in a row and it was announced yesterday that the super star earned 7 Billboard Award nominations.

With his career on the up swing Forbes is also saying that the price of tickets for the second leg of Luke’s That’s My Kind of Party’ Tour is going up with it!


The first leg of the tour from January 16 through March 8 was fairly successful with a $145.81 average ticket price on the secondary market. Leg number two will be much longer in duration and carries a much higher average price.

Across all 33 dates on the second leg of the tour going through October 25, the average price on the secondary market is $216.73, 48.6% higher than the first leg. Even with the increased average price, there’s plenty of value opportunities to see Bryan at a below average price.

Leg two of ‘That’s My Kind of Party’ will be more than twice the length of the first leg earlier in the year. With much of the show set to remain the same, including Cole Swindell and Lee Brice as the opening acts, the biggest chance for the upcoming dates in the new, higher price.

As a fan, at what price does a concert ticket become too much?
