Eaux Claires

Justin Vernon of Bon Iver will present the Eaux Claires Festival to Eau Claire, Wisconsin for its third edition on June 17-18, 2017. The line-up will include a diverse array of talent, including Paul Simon, Chance the Rapper, Bon Iver and more. The arts and music festival, co-curated by The National's Aaron Dresser, will take place at Foster Farms in Vernon's hometown of Eau Claire, located about 90 miles southeast of Minneapolis/St. Paul. 

The festival grounds will be different this year, according to the Eaux Claires website. They will only have two stages this year, allowing patrons to focus on the creative artworks that make Eaux Claires unique. The campgrounds will open on June 16, for patrons who choose to enjoy the camping experience at the festival located in bucolic rural Wisconsin. Check out the Eaux Claires e-magazine Troix for information about the eclectic line-up artists appearing at the weekend event. 

Bon Iver will present a tribute to songwriter John Prine with "John Prine and the American Songbook." Members of Bon Iver and special guests will perform their favorite songs from Prine's extensive catalog of music. 

Paul Simon will collaborate with chamber ensemble yMusic to present classic songs from Simon's extensive catalog paired with cutting edge arrangements of contemporary classical music, according to Troix. Simon will be touring extensively during the summer of 2017, including a headlining performance at Summerfest in Milwaukee on June 30. 

Tickets are now on sale and available in weekend passes or single day passes. Chippewa (VIP) passes and campsites are also available.
