Lineup Announced for First Annual Eaux Claires Music + Arts Festival
Thanks to Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and the National's Aaron Dessner, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, is getting a new music festival. The first Eaux Claire Music & Arts Festival is happening July 18-20, and now, we have the festival lineup -- it's as diverse as it is awesome.
As you'd expect, Bon Iver and the National will both take the stage. Low, Spoon and Melt-Banana are among the many acts performing. Oh, and the Indigo Girls will be there, performing 'Swamp Ophelia' from start to finish. You can see the full lineup here.
Vernon said on the event's website:
We at Eaux Claires have been driven by the idea that our festival would encourage music-genre-walls to melt away. That the barriers between the stage and the audience altered, and expression and experience put above all. We have put so much thought into who should collaborate at this festival, from musicians to actors, filmmakers to visual artists. We will all share and revel in this collision of artistic force while performing in the arms of our own Chippewa River Valley.
