Held on the white sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in a beautiful oceanside setting, Tortuga Music Festival is a 3-day, multi-stage music festival featuring some of the biggest names in country, rock and roots music.
This festival brings like-minded fans together for an unforgettable beach weekend experience that pairs music with meaning to raise awareness for marine conservation. Tortuga works hand in hand with the Rock The Ocean Foundation to increase public awareness about the issues impacting the world’s oceans and to support scientific research, education, and ocean conservation initiatives. Over $1,000,000 has been given back to our Conservation Village partners as a direct result of ticket sales and donations from Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival.
"Such a great time at #tortugamusicfestival yesterday in Ft. Lauderdale. Festivals are always a treat as they’re one of the few times we get to cross paths with our friends from other bands. Doesn’t hurt that this one was right on the beach either! The crowd was amazing and the weather couldn’t have been better. One for the record books." - @bennettdeanlewis
"The first of hopefully many years of Tortuga to come! Met some amazing people, drank all the drinks, and CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW PERFECT @cassadeepope IS?!?" - @kendralexis27
Geoff Clowes is a South Florida-based live music photographer. He’s shot hundreds of bands over the years in three countries in venues giant and intimate; “but it's always the local shows in the small venues that I look forward to shooting the most.”
“Music photography allows me to indulge my passion for music, photography, and travel at the same time. I am truly blessed to be able to photograph the bands whose posters once adorned the walls of my childhood bedroom while also getting a pit view of the newest up and coming acts. None of this would be possible without the support of editors that believe in my art and an understanding family.”
Geoff brings with him a wealth of experience and a poignant black-and-white style that strikingly captures the passionate spirit of the artists he’s shooting. Follow him on social media and his website, Sage and Spirit Photography.
