Sasquatch 2012 artist Bon Iver performs on Saturday Night Live (Video)

Bon Iver will make the trek to the Northwest this Memorial day weekend to play Sasquatch 2012. Anyone watching SNL last night got the opportunity to see Bon Iver take the stage and  play “Holocene” and “Beth/Rest,” two songs off their second album, Bon Iver.

Bon Iver has been nominated for four major awards, including Best New Artist, and both Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Holocene.” Frontman Justin Vernon recently told Billboard how he had declined an invitation to play during the Grammy Awards telecast.
