Eaux Claires music festival is coming back for year 3


About a month after the second-ever Eaux Claires music festival, organizers announced it'll be back for round three next summer.

The event – started by Bon Iver frontman and Wisconsin native Justin Vernon – included 50-plus acts this year. Among them: Bon Iver, Chance the Rapper, Atmosphere, Jenny Lewis and Minnesota’s-own Har Mar Superstar. (See photos from this year's festival here.)

We don't actually know what the lineup is – no acts have been announced for next year's festival. But you can buy tickets, with a limited pre-sale for the June 16-17, 2017, event beginning Friday at 10 a.m.


You can buy tickets online here. There are currently two pricing options:

  • The two-day Eau Claire general admission pass for $125, which gives you full access to both days of Eaux Claires III.
  • The two-day Chippewa enhanced pass for $250, which gives you full access to both days of the festival and includes a premium experience in the Chippewa area – "a relaxing environment just steps away from the main stage."

Campsite and camping passes will also be sold starting Friday, the festival's website says.

The lineup won't be announced for awhile

The lineup for the June 2017 multi-stage festival will be announced "a few weeks prior" to the event, according to Eaux Claires' website.

Festival organizers say you can sign up for the event's mailing list to get the schedule right when it's released.
