Water Is Life: Stop Line 3 is a new festival taking place on August 18th at Bayfront Park in Duluth, Minnesota. Organized by the indigenous, women-led nonprofit, in partnership with First Avenue and The Current, the event is described as “a celebration of water as the fundamental life-giving resource of Mother Earth and a full throttle of music and song against the tar sands – Line 3 oil pipeline currently meandering through the waterways and Anishinaabe land in northern Minnesota.

Artists who will host the event include Bon Iver, Lissie, Low’s Alan Sparkhawk, Grammy-nominated artist Mumu Fresh, Minnesotan songwriter Charlie Parr, Ojibwe Nation singer and activist Dorene Day Waubanewquay, and others. Proceeds from Water Is Life will go to Honor the Earth’s fight against the construction of Line 3 of the pipeline. The full list can be found below.

For the past five years, the Stop Line 3 movement has actively opposed pipeline development by Canadian fossil fuel multinational Enbridge. Honor the Earth founder and indigenous rights activist Winona LaDuke was arrested along with six other women earlier this month while protesting the pipeline.

LaDuke wrote in a press release: “Water is life. We are the people who live by the water. Pray by these waters. Travel by the water. Eat and drink from these waters. We are related to those who live in water. Poisoning the waters with line 3 means disrespect for creation. Honoring and protecting the waters is our responsibility as people of the country. “
