For two days, some of the biggest bands and musicians around took over a Wisconsin campground for the second annual Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival.

The event – started by Bon Iver frontman and Wisconsin native Justin Vernon last year – included 50-plus acts, such as:

  • Bon Iver
  • Chance the Rapper
  • Erykah Badu
  • Atmosphere
  • Beach HouseGrimes
  • Jenny Lewis
  • Vince Staples
  • Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
  • Minnesota’s-own Har Mar Superstar

Michael Brown, the festival's creative director, said through Twitter:

"I hope you're all resting and reflecting on everything that happened over this past weekend. Two records live dropped, 4 sets of new music were performed with the debut of 3 new bands, and we had so many truly special moments of collaboration ... We rest for now and reflect for later. A sincere thanks to all that joined us, and made this special."
