Some of the great and the good from the Minnesota music world will join an effort to preserve the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
Atmosphere has been signed up to headline the Wild Waters Music Fest to Save the Boundary Waters, which will be held on Friday, Aug. 16 at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth.
Joining them on the bill are fellow Minnesotan acts including Doomtree, Low, Cloud Cult, Jeremy Messersmith, deM atlaS, DJ Keezy, War Bonnet and The Lioness.
Doomtree's appearance will be one of the few chances this year you'll get to see the hip-hop collective's full lineup, including Dessa, P.O.S., and Lazerbeak.
The festival has been booked by Live Nation and organized by the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters.
Tickets start at $33 and go on sale to the general public at noon Friday via Ticketmaster.
A portion of the ticket proceeds will go directly to Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness, which is leading the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters.
Activists are currently opposing efforts by the Trump administration to open up an area of Superior National Forest for copper-nickel mining on the edge of the wilderness, which they say could lead to contamination of the unspoiled wilderness within the BWCA watershed.
Tom Landwehr, executive director for the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters, said: "Like the Boundary Waters, Minnesota’s rich music scene is cherished here at home and recognized far and wide. It’s awesome to see so many great Minnesota musicians uniting in support of our mission to save this pristine wilderness and shared treasure."
