This past weekend, the second annual Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival was held in fest creator Justin Vernon's Wisconsin hometown. Prior to the new Bon Iver tracks and the announcement of his new LP '22, A Million', the biggest headline of the fest was that it was going to feature a Grateful Dead tribute in association with the Dessner brothers' massive Day of the Dead compilation. Bonnie Prince Billy, Jenny Lewis, Phosphorescent, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Lisa Hannigan, Richard Reed Perry, The National of course, and more turned up for that, and collaborative sets abounded all weekend, as well as Bon Iver performing his new album in it's entirety!

This week's Blog Radio show on SiriusXM (8/16) is dedicated to the Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival, as well as the Day of the Dead. The playlist includes almost every artist that performed in Wisconsin this past weekend, as well as a few tracks from the Grateful Dead tribute album. Blog Radio airs every Wednesday from noon - 2 PM Eastern on SiriusXMU and repeats at midnight.  It is also available OnDemand with the SiriusXM app. Check out the playlist below:
