ISLA MUJERES, Q.R., – Isla Mujeres will welcome an informal delegation of Nashville musicians, singers, and songwriters —along with fans, fun lovers, and fishermen– for The Island Time Music and Fishing Fest, February 15-20, 2016.
This year’s performance lineup includes both promising and pedigreed artists and a mixture of styles, genres, and repertoires. A partial list of songwriters and entertainers scheduled to appear includes Kellie Pickler, Jerrod Niemann, Blackjack Billy, Love & Theft, Kyle Jacobs, American Young, Nick Norman, Natalie Stovall, Lewis Brice, Joal Rush, Hailey Steele, Rob Hatch, and Ryan Rickman.
The event’s six day schedule features a series of live performances in local venues (including a luxurious private residence) along with a fishing tournament that coincides with the winter migration of sailfish to the local waters.
Proceeds from event tickets, the fishing tournament, an online memorabilia auction, and sales of commemorative merchandise will fund the operations of the Little Yellow Schoolhouse, which provides services to the special needs children of Isla Mujeres at no charge.
Bundled tickets for the event range from $199 to $249 per person and additional pricing for select events is also available. Complete information on the Island Time Music and Fishing Festival, along with a link to purchase tickets, can be found at IslandTimeMusicFest.com.
The Little Yellow School House in Isla Mujeres began with one room and six students. With support from donors including the music fest, the school now has six classrooms, full-time teachers and over 50 students.
