American indie-folk band Bon Iver will perform in Indonesia on Jan. 19, 2020, at the Tennis Indoor Senayan, Central Jakarta.

This will be the band’s first performance in Indonesia and is part of its first Asia tour, which includes Seoul, Bangkok, Singapore and Tokyo.

Sarah Deshita, brand manager of organizer Ismaya Live said: “The music of Bon Iver brings their listeners to a time and place that is distinguishable. The show will transport you to the band’s state of mind that is filled with moments of contemplation and self-reflection that feel solemn.”
