The brainchild of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and The National’s Aaron Dessner, Wisconsin’s Eaux Claires is gearing up for their 2nd annual music festival, set to take place August 12-13 in Eau Claire, WI. Today fans took to social media to share a very special surprise that had been mailed to them.
Organizers behind the festival apparently sent Early Bird ticket buyers a personal thank you note along with a cassette tape titled “Deux” featuring B-sides, demos, and home recordings of artists set to appear on the 2016 lineup. Noted in the letter was the official lineup reveal date which will be this coming Thursday, February 11th.
