Remember all the varied cowboy hats and sandy boots of this past April's Tortuga Music Festival? How the bikinis clung to sweaty bods and cozies hugged those LandShark brews so tightly!
Even the mere memory of those two springtime days sends you into waves of beachy concert ecstasy. The fest was heavily countrified with Kenny Chesney and Eric Church but featured rock, funk, and folk too, with the Avett Brothers, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Sister Hazel, and others. The scene out there on Fort Lauderdale Beach was beyond chill. We even named it New Times Broward Palm Beach's Best Festival in 2013.
Tortuga is coming back ashore and has announced its 2014 dates. We also have tickets you can snag after the jump!
