Tortuga Music Festival partner CMT, which is already providing content and contests across its television, internet, social and radio network platforms, has confirmed it will host its popular “Hot 20 Countdown” program from the festival site this year, capturing performances and artist interviews with exclusive coverage of the two-day festival with country’s biggest superstars.
Produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment and created with the Rock the Ocean Foundation, Tortuga Music Festival serves to celebrate its oceanfront setting while raising awareness of issues impacting the world’s oceans and generating support for marine research and conservation. This year’s festival will once again include a one-of-a-kind Conservation Village on site, with nearly two dozen organizations and exhibitions providing attendees with information and tools to help protect the world’s oceans and marine resources.
“Most people have no idea how bad the condition of our oceans are,” says Rock The Ocean founder Chris Stacey. “We’re excited to be part of a live entertainment event that everyone can enjoy, but we do so in observance of the important message we are committed to. Reefs, sharks, turtles and many more are all in danger, and it’s only in respecting and conserving our natural resources that we can continue events like these for years to come.”
