Kenny Chesney and Thomas Rhett have joined Jason Aldean as headliners of Rock The Ocean’s 2019 Tortuga Music Festival, which will take place April 12-14 on the shores of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in Florida.

Chesney, a champion of the festival and its work around ocean conservation and stewardship since its first year, returns to headline the three-day oceanfront experience for the fourth time.  It was also revealed that Danielle Bradbery, Kane Brown, Sheryl Crow, Delta Rae, Lindsay Ell, Morgan Evans, Flo Rida, Chris Janson, Jillian Jacqueline, Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, Cody Johnson, Elle King, Dustin Lynch, Maddie & Tae, Midland, Maren Morris, David Lee Murphy, Carly Pearce, Cassadee Pope, RaeLynn, Michael Ray, Trombone Shorty, Mitchell Tenpenny and The Wailers will take the stage, with more acts to be announced in the coming weeks.

The festival has also added a third Next from Nashville stage for 2019 which will bring more acts to the festival than ever before. The event strives to raise funds and awareness of the issues that the world’s oceans 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 at Rock The Ocean’s Conservation Village and attend an arena of exhibits within the festival grounds, where they can experience games, interactive touch tanks, cooking exhibitions, the latest ocean technology, and learn how they can help make a difference.
