Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line and Keith Urban are the headliners for the 2018 Tortuga Music Festival on Fort Lauderdale beach April 6-8, joined by a diverse list of other acts including Snoop Dogg, Dwight Yoakam, Cheap Trick, Shaggy and Michael Franti & Spearhead.

The $229 price for the standard pass is the same as the 2017 festival, when VIP cost $999 and Super VIP was $1,499.
An alumni-discount presale will begin Monday, Nov. 27, with prices at $189 for the three-day, general-admission pass and $899 for VIP. The alumni discount can be accessed only with a passcode that the festival is sending via email to anyone who purchased a Tortuga pass in prior years, 2013-2017.
Now in its sixth year, the country-music event has set an attendance record each time out. The sold-out 2017 festival drew more than 100,000 people to Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, with fans from all 50 states and 22 countries, according to event organizers.
Produced by the ecology-minded Rock the Ocean, in partnership with Live Nation, the festival was named Festival of the Year by the Academy of Country Music for its idyllic setting, ocean-conservation themes and an always eclectic lineup.
Other acts on the bill in 2018 include the Brothers Osborne, Lee Brice, Dan + Shay, Russell Dickerson, Kip Moore, Chase Rice, Lucie Silvas, William Michael Morgan, Muscadine Bloodline, Dylan Scott, Sister Hazel, the Cadillac Three and Tyminski . More acts are expected to be named.
As always, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales help fund research on sea turtles and ocean conservation. For more information, visit TortugaMusicFestival.com/conservation.
