Nashville, TN – January 15, 2019 – Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival revealed the genre’s hottest lineup for the three-day, newly three-stage, festival that includes the addition of the stage dubbed “Next From Nashville” alongside the fan-familiar Main Stage and Sunset Stage. The announcement follows news that headliners Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney and Thomas Rhett will perform along with Flo Rida, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Elle King, Dustin Lynch, Maren Morris and more who will descend upon the shores of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, April 12-14, 2019 for the ocean-side experience.

The stage solely built for up-and-coming Nashville acts has been praised by Rolling Stone for “shining the spotlight on new talent” and a place “where up-and-comers are given a chance to introduce their music in between sets by veteran acts.” The launchpad performance opportunity has become a well-known hit at Tortuga’s sister festivals, which include Faster Horses Festival, Watershed Festival and Country LakeShake, for propelling new artists upward in the genre.

Tortuga Music Festival, established in 2013, quickly became one of the most sought-after festivals, pulling fans from all around the world to enjoy three-days of fun in the sun while a manifold of artists across all genres create a one-of-a-kind festival experience. Tortuga Music Festival also strives to raise funds and awareness of the issues that the world’s ocean currently face, as well as supporting marine conservation and research. Attendees can also learn more about where a portion of the proceeds from their passes go, onsite at the festival at Rock The Ocean’s Conservation Village. Offering an arena of exhibits within the festival grounds, fans can experience games, interactive touch tanks, cooking exhibitions, the latest ocean technology, and learn how they can help make a difference.
