Justin Vernon will revive Bon Iver this summer, ending a quiet spell of almost four years. During an interview with Minneapolis' KARE 11, Vernon revealed that he'll get the band back together for a headlining set at the inaugural Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival, to be held in Vernon's native Wisconsin from July 17-18. “It’s the perfect platform for us to be like, 'This is how we’re starting this new cycle, new life of the band,'" he said. "It makes so much sense to start it here.”
