Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival TicketsHeld almost every year since 2015 at Foster Farms in Eau Claire, Wis., the Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival is a summertime indie rock and art rock festival. The two-day event was founded by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and The National's Aaron Dessner. The intention behind the Eaux Claires Festival is to bring attention to the area as a bastion of talent in music and the arts and provide a platform and space for those artists and their fans to meet and perform.
A Festival by and for ArtistsDessner and Vernon first met in 2008. Throughout the course of their friendship, they created a shared vision of a music festival that was distinctly friendly to artists and provided a village-like experience beyond just a venue for watching bands play live. Their vision was inspired by festivals like Boston Calling and Music NOW.
