The Indie Rock band Bon Iver led by Wisconsin frontman Justin Vernon is set to play in Duluth this coming summer (2023).

Bon Iver is no stranger to Bayfront Festival Park. They last play at the venue while headlining the Honor the Earth's "Water Is Life: Stop Line 3" Festival back in August of 2021. The band stated:

We are deeply humbled to perform and gather alongside other musicians, artists, poets, and Indigenous elders in celebration of water and in resistance to the Line 3 pipeline threatening the waterways and Anishinaabe lands of northern Minnesota.
