The Minneapolis, Minnesota based radio station The Current have reported that Justin Vernon has plans to start up his own music festival this year in his hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Called the Eau Claire Music and Arts Festival, it takes place on 17 and 18 July on the Foster Farm with camping to take place on those days as well.

Vernon is teaming up with Crashline Productions, who put on the massively successful Boston Calling festival every year, for the festivities. They're expecting up to 25,000 people to attend each day and there will be three stages, but no other details have been revealed.
