YES! Music festivals these days are into having oddball random acts thrown in to spice things up. And that’s exactly what they like to do in Fort Lauderdale at the Tortuga Music Festival. While most of the acts are country stars like Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Tim McGraw, they toss in a few wild cards to bring in those who may not be into the cowboy boots lifestyle. This year, Tortuga has announced they’ve invited Pitbull, Barenaked Ladies and, yes wait for it, Vanilla Ice. The concerts happen on the beach in Fort Lauderdale April 17 through the 19th. Tickets are on sale now. You can buy single day passes or one that gets you in all weekend if you love country.
Not up for the road trip? Here’s a look at some upcoming Q105 concerts a little closer to Tampa, including a Vanilla Ice show in Orlando April 25!
