Country Artists To Play ‘Rock The Ocean’ Festival

tortuga_2014_sun_logo_datesCountry hit makers Luke Bryan and Eric Church will headline Rock The Ocean’s second annual Tortuga Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, Fla. on April 12 and 13. The festival will also feature performances from Sheryl Crow, Billy Currington, Brett Eldredge, Cole Swindell, Frankie Ballard, Brothers Osborne, Chase Rice, Moon Taxi and more.

The festival, which is produced by HUKA Entertainment and created with the Rock the Ocean Foundation, raises awareness for oceanfront issues and supports marine research and conservation.

“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.”

Over 25,000 fans attended last year’s festival, raising more than $70,000 in proceeds for various marine conservation organizations, including the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. CMT will partner with the festival this year, providing fans with content and contests across its platforms.

“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.”

Advance ticket sales begin Friday, Dec. 13. Two-day, general admission ticket prices start at $155. For more information, visit
