Justin Vernon and The Nationals’ Aaron Dessner’s Eaux Claires Festival just dropped their entire 2016 lineup.
On top of the announcement that Vernon is in the process of writing new Bon Iver music for the festival in his hometown of Eaux Claires, Wisconsin, the festival will feature bands that have recently appeared in their promotional cassette mixtape. Those bands include Bon Iver, James Blake, Jon Hopkins and Shabazz Palaces.
Eaux Claires second year will also include performances by Beach House, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Vince Staples, Nathaniel Rateliff and more. No sets by The National, but Bryce and Aaron Dessner will debut their Day of the Dead band, which features an “all star cast” of musicians covering Grateful Dead songs; with Bryan and Scott Devendorf also of the National performing as LNZNDRF.
