The Eaux Claires music festival is returning for its third year and the full lineup has been revealed.

Curated by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and The National's Aaron Dessner, the Wisconsin festival is being held in June this year instead of August, as it has been the past two years.

On Wednesday, those who bought their tickets early got an advance look at the lineup, which isn't officially being confirmed until Thursday, via pamphlets mailed out by organizers.

Leaping off the page immediately is music legend Paul Simon, who will be taking to the stage with yMusic, a chamber group with whom Simon has collaborated on his most recent album.

Other big names performing include Chance the Rapper and Feist, while Jeff Tweedy will be on stage twice as he performs with his bands Wilco and Tweedy.

Also on the bill are Danny Brown, Sylvan Esso, Perfume Genius, Mouse on Mars, Francis and the Lights, This Is The Kit, and Mountain Man, among others.

Chance the Rapper's booking comes after he made a surprise appearance at the 2016 festival during Francis and the Lights' set, Pitchfork reports.

Needless to say, Bon Iver will also be performing.

The festival will be held on the weekend of June 16 and 17. More information on ticket sales will be released on the Eaux Claires website at noon Thursday, with limited amounts of advance, campsite, camp access, dorm room and parking passes available for purchase.
