In case you didn’t notice all the political ads, this is a big election year. And there are a lot of organizations, celebrities and artists sharing the importance of voting. Bon Iver is among those artists to encourage folks to vote and they are adding an incentive by playing three shows in Wisconsin, a swing state, but there’s a catch.

“In early October during the lead-up to the 2020 election, the band will play the cities of La Crosse, Wausau, and Appleton for the first time ever,” according to a press release. “Fans must pledge to vote in order to gain access to presale tickets for all three shows before they go on sale to the public this Friday, Feb. 21.”

Wisconsin’s Presidential Primary Election is on Tuesday, April 7.
