Earlier today, this year’s lineup for Eaux Claires festival was released via pamphlets passed out to advance ticket holders. The Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver)-run festival held in rural Wisconsin is featuring a pretty impressive lineup, with notable guests including Paul Simon (with YMusic), Feist, Wilco, Chance the Rapper, Danny Brown, Francis and the Lights, Perfume Genius, and a possible collaborative performance by Vernon and John Prine (“Bon Iver Presents John Prine And The American Songbook”).
This year will also have something called “Artists-in-Residence”, who will apparently be “an assembled cast of notable musicians [creating] an integral creative core, ready to jump in and contribute their talents to announced and unannounced performances across the entire weekend.” Artists-in-Residence this year will include Sam Amidon, Phil Cook, Bryce Dessner, Jenny Lewis, The Staves, and Anais Mitchell.
