It's never too early to talk about festival season. In fact, in my ideal world, the season would just be a consistent cycle so that I wouldn't have to travel to Australia to keep up with it in the winter months.

Thankfully, the fourth annual Todos Santos Music Festival is set to fill that particular void in the southern Baja region of Mexico from Jan. 15-17 and 21-24. The festival is the brainchild of guitarist Peter Buck of R.E.M. which was established to make a difference in the community by bringing together artists to raise funds for important local charities. The 2014 Todos Santos Music Festival raised $62,000, which was distributed to several of the town’s most invaluable organizations.

We're all about charity, but what about the lineup? Set to rock the Todos Santos Festival this year are luminaries such as Old 97's, Conor Oberst, M. Ward, the Autumn Defense, Dawes, and a whole heap more.
