Bon Iver, Erykah Badu, Beach House and more to play Eaux Claires festival 2016

Shabazz Palaces, Jon Hopkins and Vince Staples also set to perform at the Wisconsin festival

Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and the National’s Aaron Dessner have announced the line-up for their second annual Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival.

Among the names that have been confirmed are James Blake, Shabazz Palaces, Erykah Badu and Jon Hopkins.

Beach House, Vince Staples and Unknown Mortal Orchestra are also set to appear at the festival, taking place August 12-13 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.


Vernon will be performing together with his band Bon Iver. Dessner and his brother Bryce will present Day of the Dead, an “all-star cast of musicians” covering Grateful Dead songs.

The three recently teamed up with Colin Stetson and instrumental group yMusic to cover Sharon Van Etten’s ‘Love More’.

The National’s frontman Matt Berninger recently revealed that the band are getting ready to start work on a new album.

“We’re trying to get in a room together more often for the next record and that’s been really fun, not tinkering over things obsessively on our own,” he told The Independent.

The US band released their sixth album ’Trouble Will Find Me’ in 2013.

Last year, Justin Vernon said he has no plans for a future Bon Iver album.
