Nashvillle’s Finest On Board for Island Time Music and Fishing Festival
The four-day Island Time Music and Fishing Festival kicks off February 24-27 in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, featuring the very best in country straight out of Nashville. In its 12th year, the festival is held annually at Isla Mujeres, an island off the coast of Cancun. With the continuation of the global COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s festival will be an all-virtual performance.
Hosted by Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs, this year’s festival features an impressive lineup of country music’s finest who are lending their voices and musical talents for a noble cause. Vince Gill, Lee Brice, Jake Owen, LOCASH, Runaway June, and A Thousand Horses are scheduled to perform from various virtual sites in Nashville, Los Angeles, and Texas. In addition to the stellar country lineup, rockers Blackberry Smoke and Lisa Loeb will also perform. To round out an already impressive lineup, Island Time Music and Fishing festival will welcome Maggie Rose, American Young, Emily West, Levi Hummon, Rob Hatch, Lewis Brice, Nick Norman, Tango, and Aaron Goodvin.
The music and fishing festival has a far greater purpose than simply the musical performances. Founded in 2009 by longtime music executive Skip Bishop, the Island Time Music Festival has annually provided needed financial support to The Little Yellow Schoolhouse, a school that has expanded to include six classrooms and a teaching staff who work directly special needs children who live on Isla Mujeres. The festival organizer’s fundraising efforts allow over 50 children to attend the school free of charge.
The fishing tournament is an equally important part of the event, since that part of Mexico is widely known for its world-class fishing excursions celebrating the island’s rich fishing industry primarily supported by tourism.
General admission tickets for the Island Time Music Festival are available now. The four-night virtual concert tickets are $150 and can be ordered on the official website.
