Justin Vernon pulls plug on planned Mexico festival

That swanky music festival near Cancun that Justin Vernon was planning for next January? Looks like its days were numbered after all.

Tickets for Days Have No Numbers went on sale last Thursday, but all that's up now at the festival's website is this message: “This event has been cancelled and full refunds are being issued automatically to all booked guests. Refunds will appear in 5-7 business days. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.” Remember that swanky Mexican getaway Justin. Well, you can forget it.

Days Have No Numbers was set to take place from Jan. 21-25, at the Hard Rock in Riviera Maya, Mexico, near Cancun. Three Bon Iver shows were promised, and Sylvan Esso, Polica, Francis & the Lights, Hiss Golden Messenger, Melt-Banana, Phil Cook, Spank Rock, Aero Flynn, Dizzy Fae, Velvet Negroni, Amy Warehouse, and Hrrrbek were also booked.

No other details regarding the cancellation are currently available. Over at the Strib, though, Chris Riemenschneider reports that ticket sales ceased on Saturday, and notes that Mexican Bon Iver fans had been complaining on social media that they'd been priced out of the event, which offered ticket packages ranging from $1,500 to $3,500.
