For three years now, Bon Iver founder Justin Vernon has been inviting musicians to his home town of Eau Claire, Wisconsin for the Eaux Claires Music And Arts Festival. Now, the festival has released its 2017 lineup, with artists ranging from Paul Simon to Chance The Rapper all topping the bill. Simon—whose other recent works include an appearance at the Democratic National Convention last year, and the theme song for Louis CK’s Horace And Pete—will appear with chamber ensemble yMusic, whose members contributed to his 2016 album Stranger To Stranger.

Other big names at the festival, which runs from June 16 to June 17, include Wilco, John Prine, Feist, Sylvan Esso, and Francis and the Lights. You can purchase tickets for the festival, and see its full line-up, right here; a more detailed schedule will be released as its opening date approaches.
