boniver.new.3

Next summer, the city of Eau Claire, Wisconsin will play host to the inaugural Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival, curated by hometown hero Justin Vernon (Bon Iver, Volcano Choir) and The National’s Aaron Dessner. While the lineup won’t be announced until early 2015, you can purchase your tickets starting today at Noon CST from the venue website. Eaux Claires promises to be one of the most diverse and special festival lineups of the year, featuring performances and collaborations you won’t see at any other event in 2015.

A message from Justin-

After several years of touring and playing music festivals of all different types around the world, I wanted to put together an event that would honor what we love about this place—including an independent attitude and blaze orange caps—but also shine a light on less familiar and surprising elements that are already weaving themselves into our future.

Having this festival right in my backyard gives me and the guest artists a chance to share familiar work and new creations in a setting close to my heart and different than any other stage in the world. To create this event within view of the Chippewa River—the very river that defines this place—makes it all the more meaningful.

We’re fortunate, because the Chippewa Valley already has a history of great music festivals. Everyone—the city, the county, and the Country Jam folks—has been very supportive. They’re helping us take it beyond music into a celebration of film, art, and things still in the works … just walking around the place is going to be an experience. - Justin Vernon

Oneida Presents The Ocropolis At Godspeed You! Black Emperor ATP

At 9.30am on Saturday December 4, the five members of Oneida, their Secret Project Robot visuals crew, stage manager Kyle Hepp and Jagjaguwar’s UK publicist/merch monkey entered the Crazy Horse venue at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead to set up the second Oneida Presents The Ocropolis at All Tomorrow’s Parties.

The first took place in September 2009 at the New York ATP curated by The Flaming Lips; this time the O’s gracious hosts were Godspeed You! Black Emperor. For a full explanation, please see the festival’s official billing and programme notes. In shorthand: that’s a continuous 10 hour jam, folks! Aided by assorted musical guests, SPR’s killer light show and gear borrowed off Portishead (thank you Mr Barrow and the staff of ATP).

The following ‘tweetline’ (all timings approximate) describes the action, compiled from various twitter updates.  All that and video of the performance after the jump!
