Earlier this year My
Morning Jacket headlined an event thrown by Cloud 9 Adventures and Bowery Presents
dubbed One Big Holiday.
Today, the Kentucky rockers have announced the second installment of the destination
festival, which will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Mexico from January
31 to February 4.

Hall Jazz Band, War On Drugs, Dr. Dog,
Dawes, Sylvan Esso
and DJ Biz Markie. "We are so excited for this second year of One Big
second of what we hope will be many more to come! The first one was so beautiful we just
knew we had to do it again...what could be more fun than spending quality time with a
bunch of sweet folks- old friends and new- in a beautiful place celebrating
music/art/peace and love!!! Let’s get together and celebrate!" said My Morning Jacket in
a press release announcing the event.
My Morning Jacket will play three full shows at One Big Holiday, while the other acts on
the bill will perform one show a piece with the exception of Band Of Horses, who will
perform two full shows, including one acoustic performance as the sun goes down. If last
year's event is any indication, you can expect plenty of guest spots during MMJ's

on-site activities. A pre-sale for those who attended last year's event begins June 26 at
noon ET and will be followed by the general on sale on June 27 at noon ET.
