What do you get when you cross R.E.M. guitarist and part-time Todos Santos resident Peter Buck with the legendary Hotel California? Answer: the best music festival in Baja. No, the Eagles weren’t there, but as he did a year ago for the inaugural event, rock star Buck assembled an incredible collection of musical talent for the 2nd annual concert series, which was held over three weekends in January.
This year’s festival was a huge success by any standards, drawing some of the music industry’s most talented performers, including The Posies, English legend Robyn Hitchcock & The Venus 3, Steve Wynn and the Baseball Project, Chuck Prophet’s Mission Express, The Elected, Kev’n Kinney, Alejandro Escovedo, American rockers Scott McCaughey’s The Minus 5, and the locally beloved Mexican indie group Torreblanca. Proceeds benefited the Todos Santos’ Palapa Society.
If you didn’t make the 2013 edition of the Todos Santos Music Festival, you’ll definitely want to attend in 2014, with a whole new roster of top-notch musical talent on tap courtesy of R.E.M’s Peter Buck. For information about the best local accommodations, visit www.CalyCanto.com.
We look forward to rocking out with you in Todos Santos!
