Bon Iver was founded by singer-songwriter, Justin Vernon. Isolated at a cabin in northwestern Wisconsin, Vernon recorded Bon Iver’s 2007 debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago. The album has since been certified platinum and contains the hit song “Skinny Love” which is certified gold.
In 2012, Bon Iver won two Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album for their album Bon Iver, Bon Iver. In 2016, they released 22, A Million, which went on to be nominated for a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album. Their latest album, I,I, was released in 2019. It was nominated for Best Recording Package, Album of the Year and Best Alternative Music Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, as well as Record of the Year for the song “Hey, Ma”.
Bon Iver sold out both their previous performances at the Amp in 2018 and 2019 - considered by many to have been some of the best performances at the outdoor venue.
