The 2019 Island Time Music Festival & Fishing Tournament

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019, the Island Time Music Festival & Fishing Tournament once again lights up Isla Mujeres February 18th through the 23rd. Some of the most prominent modern country artists and singer-songwriters come to the island for five days of concerts, while anglers will compete to haul in the heaviest sailfish, dorado, wahoo, and other of the Mexican Caribbean’s prized gamefish.

The whole affair—including the online auction that coincides with the festival—serves as a charitable fundraiser for Isla Mujeres’s children. Among the beneficiaries is the Little Yellow Schoolhouse, a wonderful institution that provides the special needs youth of island with precious education and life skills.

This Year’s Island Time Music Festival Performers

As usual, an impressive lineup of big names from Nashville and beyond will be taking the stage at the Island Time Music Festival for its 10th go-round. They include A Thousand Horses, Cowboy Mouth, Maggie Rose, Jerrod Niemann, Runaway Jane, Love & Theft, and Them Vibes, among a slew of others. You can take a gander at the complete lineup right here.
