Mayor Cristina Torres Gomez participated in a press conference about the shootings. “We want these types of events to go,” she said. “We won’t allow one more.”
Similar bans have been occurring worldwide. In Argentina, deaths due to drug usage caused a ban. Likewise, drug-related deaths at HARD Summer Festival in California caused legislators to consider doing the same.
In the meantime, it’s looking like the upcoming Arena Festival, which should be held in Playa del Carmen, may be off. Arena posted a statement on Facebook simply saying to wait for more updates.
