When: August 12th-August 13th
Where: Eau Claire, Wisconsin
Why Go: Bon Iver's Justin Vernon still lives and records in his western Wisconsin hometown, and last year he made an additional investment in his community, partnering with the National's Aaron Dessner to bring a new art and music festival to a farm just outside of the city. This year's Eaux Claires will be your only chance to catch a performance from Day of the Dead, Aaron and Bryce Dessner's all-star Grateful Dead tribute project.
Must-See Acts: Day of the Dead, Bon Iver, James Blake, Shabazz Palaces, Erykah Badu, Beach House, Vince Staples, Melvins, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Mavis Staples, Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers
