Tortuga 2016 is around the corner, and as one of South Florida's fastest-growing music festivals, it has a lot to prove its fourth time around. After selling out last year's two-day Fort Lauderdale Beach event, Tortuga has added a third day and kept fans hyped with a lineup full of country's biggest names: Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, and Sam Hunt. Today, Tortuga also rolled out its new dedicated app for 2016, chock-full of interactive functionality.
Here's more from the official announcement:
Available for free download for both iOS and Android users, the app keeps everything Tortuga right at your fingertips. Fans can create a custom schedule, discover artists playing the festival, learn about the festival cause and on-site conservation activities, check out food options on site, view a selection of maps, and much more...
Additionally, fans that have the Tortuga Mobile App downloaded on their phones and have opted to receive push notifications and integrated their bluetooth with the app, will also receive instant updaes and fun messaging during the festival about special experiences, important festival reminders, and enhanced customer service.
