    It will be interesting to see who plays this, and what happens. The last two years have been totally ridiculous and will be hard to top.

    Justin Vernon debuting a new project at each Eaux Claires festival would be a dream come true. Probably not happening, but...

    What's the best perks of it? We didn't end up buying our tickets in the presale, but we will in the next round. Obviously missed the slightly cheaper price if we do get those ones, but oh well.

    amazing food (they slow cooked goats over campfires all day and served it for dinner along with pulled pork and chicken legs... super tasty bbq), all the beer you can drink (usually never a long line either), private bathroom section with no lines, and a place to sit down in the shade which is a bigger deal than you might think. overall, my opinion is grabbing chippewa passes along with camping is the best way to do eaux claires.

    Oh that does sound awesome.. Any idea why they didn't mention the alcohol this year like they have done previously? It used to say it under the Chippewa pass description but for 2017 it doesn't!

    Not sure. I really hope they continue that perk. I mean, it was only the beer that was free. You still had to pay for alcohol.
