The Todos Santos Music Festival was created by Peter Buck of REM and brought to life by The Hotel California to add music to the long list of artistic endeavors hosted in this Pueblo Magico in Baja Sur, Mexico.
And now, Buck has announced the talent lineup for the second annual Todos Santos Music Festival, a ten-day music event benefiting the Palapa Society of Todos Santos, A.C. The festival, presented by The Hotel California, will be held in Todos Santos, January 10-26, 2013.
The Todos Santos Music Festival will feature ten full nights of entertainment throughout the town, including eight days of music on the patio of Hotel California, a special Alejandro Escovedo concert in the town plaza, and a large concert on the beach at Punta Lobos.
The lineup of artists, hand-selected by Peter Buck, features an eclectic array of musicians ranging from industry legends to emerging local talent. The first wave of confirmed acts includes the return of: English legend Robyn Hitchcock, rock industry super groupb Steve Wynn and the Baseball Project, and American rock band Scott McCaughey’s The Minus 5. The roster will also include performances by revered singer-songwriter Alejandro Escovedo, 90’s alt-rock darlings The Posies, indie rock artist Joseph Arthur, Chuck Prophet’s Mission Express, and breakout Mexican indie-pop group Torreblanca. The Elected, Kev’n Kinney, Jon Langford, and Ken Stringfellow will also appear, with set times to be revealed in advance of the festival.
“This festival is the most fun I have ever had playing music with the chance to perform at an amazing location with some of my favorite musicians,” says Buck. “It is an incredibly entertaining way to raise funds that give local children more educational opportunities and share a diversity of musical talent.”
The Todos Santos Music Festival celebrates the rich creative culture of the town of Todos Santos, and aims to make a difference in the community by fundraising for important local causes. This year’s festival will benefit The Palapa Society of Todos Santos A.C., which provides educational after-school programs for local children.
