Pack Your Bags: XPN favorites Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and Lucius to play Eaux Claires festival in August
The lineup for the 2016 Eaux Claires music festival, which takes place on August 12-13 in rural Eau Claire, Wisconsin, has been released. Festival curators Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Aaron Dessner (The National) have put together a fantastic bill, including Beach House, James Blake, Lucius, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and of course, Bon Iver.
Although we’re disappointed that no Philly bands made the cutthis is still quite the stacked lineup. We’ve long been drawn to the addictive melodies of indie-pop five-piece Lucius, who are fresh off an energetic performance on the World Cafe. Not to mention the soulful blues rock of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, whose track “S.O.B.” was highlighted by XPN way back in August.
Check out the entire lineup below. Tickets to the festival can be found here.
