Last year, Bon Iver frontman and Wisconsin native Justin Vernon put together the first annual Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival.

It's coming back for a second year, and Bon Iver will once again be one of the headliners.

The festival, which is running Aug. 12-13 at Foster Farms in Eau Claire, announced the full lineup Thursday morning – here's a video detailing it (or, if you prefer words, all the acts are listed here):
