World-renowned band Bon Iver chooses MÄN as their Swedish partner
The American band Bon Iver has selected MÄN as their partner when the band comes to Sweden to perform at Dalhalla in Rättvik on June 10. Exclusive ticket packages for the sold-out concert have now been released, and all proceeds go to MÄN.
We are incredibly proud to announce that the American band Bon Iver has chosen MÄN as their partner for their visit to Sweden this summer. MÄN is selected as a partner in Sweden for our work to end violence and redefine masculinity.
– One of the biggest problems with domestic abuse is that people don't talk about it. It's insidious, stigmatized, and silenced, says Justin Vernon, singer and founder of Bon Iver.
Exclusive ticket packages
Bon Iver's concert in Sweden at Dalhalla in Rättvik has been sold out for a long time. But there is a chance to see the band and support MÄN simultaneously as exclusive packages have been released. There are two packages consisting of two premium tickets, a t-shirt, and a signed LP record. All proceeds from these packages go directly to MÄN. You can read more about them at 2abillion.org.
One dollar per concert ticket sold is donated to MÄN
The collaboration also means that 1 USD per sold ticket will be donated to MÄN's activities.
– The attention from Bon Iver gives our organization an opportunity to reach out with our message to more boys and men and give them hope for a masculinity that is not limited by destructive norms, says Shahab Ahmadian, chairperson of the organization MÄN.
