Fort Lauderdale Beach

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The Tortuga Beach Music Festival kicks off on Friday and there are some important traffic advisories you should know about if you’re headed to Fort Lauderdale Beach this weekend.

Sections of the beach along 1100 Seabreeze Boulevard will be blocked off for the music event that will run from Friday, Apr. 8- Sunday, Apr. 10 from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. each day.

Motorists should expect delays along A1A and Seabreeze Boulevard and on Southeast 17 Street and Las Olas Bouelvard. Road closures will also be in effect in north and south bound lanes from Harbor Drive to Southeast 5th Street from 10 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. to allow crowds to exit the festival.

Attendees are encouraged to use a rideshare service or the Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi to get to the event, because there is no designated parking. It’s important to note the designated pick-up and drop off areas for rideshare services, at Las Olas Marina at 240 Las Olas Circle, to avoid fines.

The Rock The Ocean Foundation organizes the beachside concerts to raise awareness for marine conservation. Nelly, Sublime with Rome and Thomas Rhett are just a few of the performers who will take the stage throughout the weekend.
