The Tortuga Music Festival is this Saturday and Sunday at Fort Lauderdale beach park.  Thousands of people are expected “to rock the beach” in support of marine conservation.

Music and beach lovers are expected to take over the beach this weekend for the “Rock the Ocean, Tortuga Music Festival”.  This is the second year in a row for the concert.  The inaugural concert drew more than 25,000 fans to Fort Lauderdale beach last year.

This year some of music’s biggest names will be performing.  Tortuga Music Festival is pairing country, rock and roots music with over 20 bands in the line-up including Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Train, Dierks Bentley, Hank Williams, Jr., Brantley Gilbert, Sheryl Crow, Billy Currington, Slightly Stoopid, Ziggy Marley and many more.

The festival will be held along the shoreline of the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel.  With three stages with catwalks, giving fans the opportunity to be up close with their favorite artists.  The performers will be able to walk out into the crowds and mingle with attendees.

This year the festival will have dozens of marine conservation organizations on site.  Because the Tortuga event carries a heavy emphasis on healthy oceans education, all marine research and conservation organizations will gather in the Conservation Village.  All proceeds from the festival will be donated to conservation groups. A portion of all profits comes straight back to Rock the Ocean Foundation, where grants are awarded to deserving scientists, educators and proxies for change.   Last year the Tortuga Music Festival raised over $70,000!
