Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert and Hank Williams Jr. are among the latest artists confirmed for the Tortuga Music Festival to be held on the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on April 12 and 13.

They'll be joined by Luke Bryan and Eric Church, who were previously announced as headliners, as well as Sheryl Crow, Billy Currington and Train. Country newcomers Frankie Ballard ("Helluva Life"), Brothers Osborne ("Let's Go There"), Brett Eldredge ("Don't Ya"), Parmalee ("Carolina"), Eric Paslay ("Friday Night"), Chase Rice ("Ready Set Roll") and Cole Swindell ("Chillin' It") are also on the bill.

Festival tickets are now on sale with two-day general admission prices starting at $165.

The lineup also features 38 Special, Brett Dennen, Delta Rae, Ziggy Marley, Moon Taxi, Quaker City Night Hawks, the Revivalists, Slightly Stoopid, Sons of Fathers and White Denim.

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, capturing performances and artist interviews with exclusive coverage of the two-day festival.

Produced and promoted by HUKA Entertainment and created with the Rock the Ocean Foundation, the 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 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.
