Justin Vernon played with Dead & Co; PEOPLE Festival lineup revealed

Bon Iver Grateful Dead

Bon Iver leader Justin Vernon and The National guitarists Aaron & Bryce Dessner recently launched the beta version of a new online music platform called PEOPLE, and they said that the official launch will be in August, the same time they throw their second PEOPLE Festival in Berlin (August 18 & 19 at Funkhaus). Today, they announced the lineup for that festival.

In addition to Justin Vernon and the Dessners, the fest includes Leslie Feist, Erlend Øye, Damien Rice, Francis and the Lights, Gaspar Claus, Lisa Hannigan, Henning May (Annenmaykantereit), Vincent Moon, Kristin Anna and Gyda Valtisdottir, Kurt Wagner (Lambchop), Alexi Murdock, Greg Saunier, Fionn Regan, Shara Nova, Sam Amidon, Mina Tindle, Greg Fox, Helado Negro, members of Arcade Fire, O, Mouse on Mars, Woodkid, Young Fathers, Sinkane, The Staves, Rone, The Drums, Boys Noize, Jónsi & Alex, Parcels, Liima, Polica, and more. Full artist list below. Tickets are on sale.

In other Justin Vernon news, he joined Dead & Company on stage when their tour hit Justin’s home state of Wisconsin on Saturday (6/23). (Justin is also on the huge 2016 Grateful Dead tribute album that the Dessners curated.) He played “Black Muddy River,” “Friend of the Devil,” and “Bird Song” with Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, John Mayer & co., and you can watch videos of it happening below. Before the show, Justin tweeted “Nbd sitting in with the dead tonight at alpine.”
