From June 8-10, 2017, thousands of roots music fans from across the glove will gather amongst the dense, sun-speckled pine forests of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, the heart of Paul Bunyan country, to enjoy the world-class lineup that is this year’s Blue Ox Music Festival. 

Hosted each year by progressive Americana band Pert Near Sandstone, Blue Ox showcases the complex fabric that is American roots music, bringing some of the genre’s best artists to an intimate natural space. The kid-friendly and environmentally-conscious festival, which strives to be a fun, inclusive, and sustainable space for everyone, is held on the Whispering Pines campground, an idyllic space for today’s best Americana music.
