ROCK THE OCEAN’S TORTUGA MUSIC FESTIVAL WINS ‘SUSTAINABILITY LEADERSHIP’ BRONZE STEVIE ® AWARD AT 2023 INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS AWARDS ®

October 18th, 2023

Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, a trailblazer in supporting ocean conservation and sustainability since its inception in 2013, has been honored with the prestigious 2023 Bronze Stevie Award for Sustainability Leadership in the US and Canada at The 20th Annual International Business Awards®.

Tortuga was the only live event honored for Sustainability Leadership with judges recognizing Tortuga’s unwavering commitment commenting, “Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival sets an industry example of how live music can be a source for change,” and noting Tortuga “demonstrated excellence in sustainability.”

Known for its “jaw-dropping performances” (CMT), Tortuga has implemented multiple conservation initiatives over its 10-year run, including banning single-use plastics, integrating compost programs, incorporating bio-fuels and hybrid battery generators to reduce diesel use, as well as having fans and artists alike participate in planting sea oats. In its quest to become one of the most sustainable large-scale music festivals on the planet, Tortuga Music Festival, in partnership with Live Nation, has invested in third party technical sustainability experts, Hope Solutions, to complete carbon assessments based on available environmental impact data from the festival. This includes site operations such as freight haulage, energy consumption, and waste, as well as staff and audience travel.

Since its inception, Tortuga has championed ocean conservation, raising over $4 million towards those efforts. Attendees of Tortuga Music Festival have the unique opportunity to explore the impact of their ticket purchase at the Rock The Ocean’s Conservation Village where 30 ocean conservation thought leaders and changemakers offer an edu-tainment experience. This immersive experience features captivating exhibits, interactive touch tanks, culinary showcases, cutting-edge ocean technology, and educational initiatives empowering individuals to make a difference.
