If you have been to the Tortuga Music Festival before, you know it’s an unforgettable and wildly entertaining experience! To top it all off, it’s also for a good cause. This year, the Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary of bringing awareness and funding to ocean conservation efforts through absolutely rocking concerts and great festival parties. Where else could you feel good about saving the oceans while spending the weekend partying?

This massive beach party hosts a wide variety of artists spanning several genres and audiences, but country music fans will have a special cause to celebrate at this event. This year’s headliners include Kenney Chesney, Erich Church, and Shania Twain! The music festival is a great chance to get together with like-minded music enthusiasts and conservationists alike for a massive beach blowout.

How The Festival Parties for Good

The music festival is put together by a 501(c)(3) non-profit, The Rock The Ocean Foundation. Here are 5 core ways that this event will directly affect marine conservation:

★   Protecting Turtle Conservation   

★   Promoting Shark Conservation   

★   Halting Coral Reef Degradation   

★   Ending Overfishing   

★   Fighting Marine Pollution


Aside from donating, there are great and fun ways to support marine conservation.

Each year, a portion of the proceeds from Tortuga is donated to the Rock The Ocean Foundation. With the help of Tortuga fans, we have raised over $3.2 million for ocean conservation initiatives! These funds have gone to over 90 partners in ocean conservation; five universities; and sponsored groundbreaking research in the United States, Bahamas, South Africa, and Asia! 

You can also volunteer at the event, or buy apparel, of which 100% of proceeds go to marine conservation. So make sure you buy a Festival shirt and enjoy a great time with a good conscious.
