Tortuga Music Festival 2019 Set Times

Put your horses in the back and grab your cowboy hat and boots: Tortuga Music Festival returns to Fort Lauderdale Beach this weekend.

This year's lineup is more diverse than those of past years by several measures. There are dozens of more women on this year's lineup than in previous years, with participating artists coming from beyond the world of country music. Headliners include Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, Maren Morris, Flo Rida, and Joan Jett, but make sure to check out the up-and-comers, too. One of the most exciting aspects of attending Tortuga is getting a preview of the future of the country music genre.

There is no official parking at the festival, so make sure to take a water taxi or rideshare service to the beach. You'll probably spend the weekend drinking your fair share of beers under the sun anyway.
