Bon Iver

Earlier this week, Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival curators Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Aaron Dessner (The National) sent out a mixtape to people who bought early bird tickets to the festival. It had unreleased music from several artists, who were presumably set to play the festival. Now the official lineup is announced, and it has several of those artists plus a lot more exciting stuff.

Possibly most excitingly, the Dessner brothers are presenting ‘Day of the Dead,’ which will have a number of musicians paying tribute to the Grateful Dead, like The National and their friends are doing for their upcoming tribute album. Eaux Claires also features James Blake and Bon Iver (who are rumored to also collaborate at the festival), Beach House, Eighth Blackbird with Bryce Dessner & Bonnie ‘Prince Billy, Erykah Badu, Jenny Lewis, Jon Hopkins, Mavis Staples, Melvins, Deafheaven, My Brightest Diamond, Nathaniel Rateliff, Phosphorescent, S. Carey, Sarah Neufeld, Shabazz Palaces, Vince Staples, Tenement, LNZNDRF, Bruce Hornsby (performing The Way It Is), Cornelius (performing Fantasma) and more.

The festival happens August 12 & 13 in Eau Claire, WI. Tickets go on sale Friday (2/12) at 10 AM CST.
