Eco-conscious festival to make a return

December 13, 2013 by  

The Tortuga Music Festival will return to Ft. Lauderdale in the spring of 2014. The inaugural beach event attracted over 25,000 fans last year, with the highlight being a performance by Kenny Chesney.

The full lineup for the event has yet to be confirmed, but some of the acts performing include Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, and Train. Those interested should keep their eyes on the event’s website for updated on newly-confirmed artists.

Created by Rock the Ocean Foundation, led by music veteran Chris Stacey along with HUKA Entertainment, the Tortuga Music Festival was an enormous success with their first event.

Emphasis is placed on educating the public on healthy-ocean endeavors, marine research and conservation. Performers with an eco-oriented mentality usually choose to sing at events of this nature.

Vendors will participate in the event as well, offering food, gifts, arts, and crafts. Banner printing will no doubt be part of the preparation for most vendors. The banners are placed in the booths or display areas and usually depict the name of the vendor and some of the products offered. Created using strong vinyl, they can be used many times.

Sponsors are also needed to help fund this large event, and recognition is achieved in various methods through the organization.

The Tortuga Music Festival will take place at Fort Lauderdale beach on April 12-13. Early bird tickets are now sold out, but other tickets will be on sale soon. Visit the Tortuga Music Festival for more information.
