Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton to Join Kenny Chesney at 2017 Tortuga Music Festival
A big country beach party will boast some huge names in 2017. The Tortuga Music Festival will welcome Luke Bryan and Chris Stapleton, in addition to the already announced Kenny Chesney, when the three-day event kicks off in early April in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Celebrating its fifth year, Tortuga is slated to take over the beach in Fort Lauderdale on April 7-9, 2017, boasting multiple stages and "unparalleled VIP amenities," according to an official press release. In 2016, the festival set a new record with over 90,000 attendees from 47 states and 16 countries -- and with the announcement of this year's headliners, the 2017 Tortuga Musical Festival may be well on its way to setting another new record.
Along with Bryan, Chesney and Stapleton, Tortuga 2017 will feature a host of other country music stars: Alan Jackson, Darius Rucker and Brett Eldredge will be there, as well as up-and-comers such as Maren Morris, Old Dominion, RaeLynn and Kane Brown. Fans can visit the festival's website to see the complete lineup.
Along with stellar music, the other main focus of the Tortuga Music Festival is the protection of the world's oceans. Since its inception, the festival has raised over $300,000 to support marine research and conservation.
Due to high demand, early bird discounted tickets for the 2017 Tortuga Music Festival have already sold out, but non-early bird tickets are available now via the fest's website. General admission and VIP tickets are on sale, and for the first time in 2017, Tortuga will allow fans to upgrade daily tickets for guaranteed front-of-stage access at the fest's Main Stage.
