Intimate venues, awesome bands, and epic music—that’s the lasting impression after yet another blockbuster rendition of the Todos Santos Music Festival. From chart-topping rock classics to show-stopping local acts—all set to the tropical backdrop of a Mexican Pueblo Mágico—this year’s festival left us with a musical experience you’d only find in Todos Santos.
In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights from what many are calling the best Todos Santos Music Festival to date:
- Mexican-American band La Santa Cecilia and local favorites Torreblanca rocked the stage with their endless energy, tireless dancing, and infectious connection with the crowd.
- Jeff Tweedy lived up to lofty expectations with a number of timeless hits, including a collaborative performance of “Airline to Heaven.”
- There were a handful of David Bowie covers performed in memory of the late legend. The Filthy Friends led by R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, joined by many more including John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, performed a cover of “Jean Genie.”
- Death Cab for Cutie and Peter Buck wrapped up the two-weekend affair with a collaborative performance of R.E.M’s “Fall on Me.”
So until next year, we’ll leave you with these photos and videos of this year’s unforgettable performances.
