Kansas. The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Foghat. Jefferson Starship. This may sound like a standard hour’s worth of programming on your local classic rock station, but these bands are notable for another reason. They are part of the star-studded lineup of the inaugural Vallarta-Nayarit Classic Rock Festival, a three-day celebration of some of the best music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s based in Puerto Vallarta.
The festival opens with a beachside concert on Thursday, December 12, that includes performances by the Fabulous Thunderbirds and the All Star House Band, featuring Billy Burnette and Elliot Easton, former guitarists for Fleetwood Mac and The Cars, respectively. In addition to the bands mentioned above, the other days of the festival will have headline performers such as Cheap Trick, Firefall, and Steve Augeri, former lead singer of Journey.
Individual day tickets and festival badges for the Vallarta-Nayarit Classic Rock Festival are available at the event’s website. If you’re a classic rock fan and are staying at either Club Regina Puerto Vallarta or Villa Vera Puerto Vallarta from December 12 through the 14th, you can’t afford to miss this great event.
