Although Bon Iver has been fairly quiet lately, frontman Justin Vernon is as busy as ever. The Wisconsin singer-songwriter is bringing a brand new music festival to his hometown of Eau Claire, Wisc., for 2015, with help from the production team behind Boston Calling.
The Eaux Claire Music and Arts Festival will take place on July 17-18, 2015, on what the Current radio describes as “a vast, remote, wooded setting” outside of Eau Claire, about a 90-minute drive from Minneapolis.
Although lineup details haven’t been revealed, permit documents say the organizers are expecting up to 25,000 people a day, spread out between three stages. On-site camping will be available from July 16-19.
