Artists, musicians and activists convened at Bayfront Festival Park for last year's Water Is Life Festival.

With a little more notice and even more women and Natives in the lineup compared to last year's inaugural fundraiser concert, the Water Is Life Festival will return to Duluth's Bayfront Festival Park on Sept. 4 with the Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco, Low and Allison Russell among its performers.

The festival will again double as a call to arms for environmental causes threatening waterways and American Indian tribal lands in Minnesota and beyond. Activist Winona LaDuke's organization Honor the Earth is the beneficiary and co-organizer of the event, tickets for which go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for $40 via

"This year, we are again honored to feature a fine assortment of artists who support the Indigenous communities of this state who face new threats - and the ongoing threats we all experience as climate rapidly alters due to the burning of fossil fuels," LaDuke said in a statement.
