The Eaux Claires music festival is coming back – here's the lineup


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):

Included among the 50-plus acts:

  • Bon Iver
  • Erykah Badu
  • James Blake
  • Beach House
  • Lucius
  • Jenny Lewis
  • Vince Staples
  • Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
  • Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers
  • Minnesota's-own Har Mar Superstar

The lineup was selected by Vernon (an Eau Claire native) and Aaron Dessner (of The National).

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at
