Bon Iver have announced three October 2020 shows in their home state of Wisconsin.

Three weeks after Bon Iver’s performance at a Bernie Sanders rally in Iowa, lead-singer Justin Vernon announced a trio of shows that require a “pledge to vote in order to gain access to pre-sale tickets.”


The concerts will take place at La Crosse’s La Crosse Center on October 5, Wausau’s Grand Theater on October 7, and Appleton’s Fox Cities PAC on October 8. The three shows are scheduled one month before the presidential election.

Bon Iver, along with Dashboard Confessional and Patty Griffin, have teamed with the 46 for 46 campaign, an organization that aims to “help elect the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee by working to increase civic engagement through music and pop culture.” The campaign was founded by Bon Iver’s manager, Kyle Frenette.

“They say Wisconsin could decide it all in 2020. We don’t take that lightly, so we’re asking fans to pledge to vote in order to gain access to pre-sale tickets for all three shows,” the band wrote in an Instagram post.
