Tortuga Music Festival took the salty life to the next level by planting a beer-, boob-, and beach-friendly festival square on the sand in Fort Lauderdale.
The inaugural event brought in waves of music lovers in cowboy hats and flip-flops. The lineup was country-heavy, but there was some folk, blues, and pop mixed in for those less interested in twang.
Just today, the fest announced its 2014 lineup (which you can see after the jump). For 2014, CMT will be partnering with Tortuga on contests and other things that'll be announced shortly. Remember, this is also all about the turtles, literally. Last year, it raised more than $70k for the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and other marine conservation orgs.
A limited number of advanced tickets for the April 12 and 13 fest go on sale this Friday, December 13, 10 a.m. EST at tortugamusicfestival.com.
