In addition to offering an exceptional lineup suitable for music lovers of all ages, Tortuga Music Festival has continued to pledge its support to ocean conservation and sustainability. Since its inception in 2013 and each year following, the festival has made it a goal to raise funds while also using the growing platform to educate the massive number of attendees about the critical environmental issues taking place within the oceans. 

As proof that the efforts of the music festival have started to make an impact, the event received the prestigious 2023 Bronze Stevie Award for Sustainability Leadership in the US and Canada at The 20th Annual International Business Awards that took place in October. 

According to the official website of the host and founder of the festival, Rock The Ocean, this not-for-profit works to fulfill the mission of increasing public awareness about the issues impacting the world’s oceans and to support scientific research, education and ocean conservation initiatives through benefit concerts, lifestyle apparel, brand partnerships, and entertainment industry events.

Tortuga Music Festival plays a big role in helping bring this vision to life by combining some of music’s biggest names with the importance of learning about the issues that are currently impacting our oceans and their ecosystems. So far, Rock The Ocean has raised $4,000,000 for ocean conservation. 

Fans will be able to explore the Rock the Ocean’s Conversation Village while on-site to learn firsthand about the work of the organization and they can get involved.
