2 years ago, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Aaron Dressner of the National teamed up to start a new festival in small town Wisconsin that turned out to the 2015’s surprise festival hit. Everyone returned home with stories about the performers, art installations and the general great vibe of Eaux Claires. 2016 proved Eaux Claires could do it again and now just weeks away from this year’s occurrence expectations are higher than ever.
This year the lineup features collaborations, big names, a little known rapper called Chance, some short old guy who your mom used to listen to, and a double dose of Jeff Tweedy. The festival will be held on June 16 and 17 with the camp grounds opening a day early on the 15th. Tickets are still available HERE
Stay tuned for more in depth features of artists and happenings.
