Kenny Chesney Returning to Headline 2017 Tortuga Festival
Kenny Chesney will serve as headliner for the fifth-annual Tortuga Music Festival next year. This will be the third time the self-proclaimed island lover will be the big name of the beachfront concert.
Tortuga Music Festival 2017 will bring live music across three days, running April 7-9 on the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Early tickets have already sold out, but regular tickets are now available for $229 for three-day General Admission and $999 for three-day VIP passes. Fans can visit the event site for more information.
“With our expansion last year to three days, our fans showed how excited they were to get an extra day of Tortuga time on the beach,” says Huka Entertainment Chief Experience Officer A.J. Niland in a press release. “We’ve had a unanimously tremendous response from the artists, fans and community expressing what a unique and special event Tortuga has become. More than 90,000 fans attended last year. And we know our fifth year will be even better!”
In addition to three days of music, the festival aims to raise awareness for issues impacting the world’s oceans and supporting marine research and conservation. More than $300,000 has been raised to support these efforts.
Previous Tortuga Music Festival performers include: Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, Jake Owen, Hank Williams, Jr., Billy Currington, Kelsea Ballerini, Sheryl Crow, Brett Eldredge, Ziggy Marley, Lynryd Skynyrd, Elle King, Frankie Ballard and more.
