Bon Iver's Justin Vernon has announced a trio of pre-election concerts in his native Wisconsin.

The celebrated indie group will be "trekking across Wisconsin" in October as part of the 46 for 46 campaign, which is aimed at boosting turnout at the 2020 presidential election.

The ultimate aim of the campaign is to unseat President Donald Trump, with musical groups taking part in 46 concerts in states that will be crucial this November.

Given President Trump carried it by a small margin in 2016, Wisconsin is one of those states, so Bon Iver has signed up to carry out the Wisconsin leg of the campaign.

They will play the La Crosse Center just across the Minnesota border on October 5, followed by shows in Wausau on Oct. 7 and Appleton on Oct. 8.

"They say Wisconsin could decide it all in 2020," Bon Iver tweeted. "We don't take that lightly, so we're asking fans to pledge to vote in order to gain access to presale tickets for all three shows."

The presales start this Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 10 a.m.

The remaining tickets then go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. You can find more information here.
