Update: Bon Iver's Mexican concert getaway is canceled

There will now be 00000 million attendees.

Bon Iver's Mexican musical getaway, called Days Have No Numbers, will now have no days.

The four-day event scheduled for Riviera Maya, Mexico, in January has been canceled.

Why? 

That's all the website says about it now. Though it initially referenced "unforeseen circumstances" as the reason, Pitchfork reports.

Bon Iver's Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and website have not mentioned the cancellation.

The band jets off to Europe in September for a short tour.

The original story from Aug. 5 is below.

Join Bon Iver on a Mexican vacation

Could someone take the summertime camping vibe of the Eaux Claires Music Fesival and transfer it to a winter vacation resort? 

Well, "Si, se puede," seems to be the answer from Bon Iver.

The indie group from Wisconsin announced this week they're hosting a four-day "concert vacation" in Mexico. And they're bringing lots of their friends from Eau Claire with them. 

It's at the Hard Rock near Cancun 

The event is called Days Have No Numbers, which is a line from the Bon Iver song "00000 Million."

There are some pretty big numbers connected with the January 21-25 festival, though. Rooms at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico, start at $1,550 per person ... and range up to $3,500 for a stagefront suite for four.

But that price covers pretty much everything. It's an all-inclusive vacation, so once you're booked your meals, drinks, and concerts are taken care of. Tickets go on sale Thursday at 11 a.m. 

Along with three shows by Bon Iver, other acts include Polica, Sylvan Esso, Francis & the Lights, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Melt-Banana. 

It's not all music, though. As Rolling Stone notes, there's a "day of service project" organized through the charitable group Positive Legacy and a donation drive to benefit local school children.
