“We’ve been incredibly excited to announce our 2014 lineup,” says HUKA Entertainment co-founder and CEO A.J. Niland. “We set out to build on last year’s foundation by putting together an amazing weekend at the beach with an incredible group of country, rock and roots acts. We feel we we’ve done exactly that, and hope our lineup brings just as much sunshine to our fans’ holiday season as it has to ours.”

Produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment and created with the Rock the Ocean Foundation, Tortuga Music Festival serves to celebrate the event’s oceanfront setting while raising awareness of issues impacting the world’s oceans and also support marine research and conservation. This year’s festival will once again include a one-of-a-kind Conservation Village on site, with nearly two dozen organizations and exhibitions to provide attendees with information and tools to help protect the world’s oceans and marine resources.
Last year’s inaugural festival drew more than 25,000 music fans from all over the world and raised more than $70,000 from ticket proceeds and donations for the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and other marine conservation organizations.
“It just feels great to be able to support our Conservation Village partners with funding for their important work,” says Rock The Ocean founder Chris Stacey. “To know that we played some small part in making sure that our coral reefs are better protected, or that scientists at Nova and the University of Miami might be able to learn a little more about shark behavior, just gives me an amazing feeling of pride.”
