The 2016 lineup for the Bon Iver led Eaux Claires Festival has finally been released in full. Names have been dribbling out for days as early-bird ticket holders received hints about the performing artist in the the most ironic way possible — mixtapes and B-sides delivered by the US mail!
Now we have the complete lineup in our hands and it’s just as beautifully eclectic as last year Like last year. Beach House, James Blake, Erykah Badu, Melvins, Jon Hopkins, Shabazz Palaces, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra caught our eye right off the bat. There’s also some cool twists like the twin brothers Dessner from the National performing their Grateful Dead Tribute Day of the Dead and Bruce Hornsby performing “The Way It Is”.
Two day general admission tickets will be $169 and are available on the official website. The festival takes place at its namesake in Eaux Claires, Wisconsin on August 12-13, 2016.
