With less than two weeks left before Eau Claire becomes an indie-rock mecca for two days, Justin Vernon and his team have released the full schedule for their inaugural Eaux Claires Music & Art Festival. The July 17-18 event will culminate with the first performance by Vernon’s Bon Iver in almost four years at 10 p.m. that Saturday. Friday’s wowza of a lineup will end with one of the few gigs this year by co-curator Bryce Dessner’s band the National, also scheduled for 10 p.m.

Performances will be split between four different stages, the biggest of which is named Lake Eaux Lune. French-challenged attendees should know the correct pronunciations of them all by fest’s end. Each day will also include film screenings, art instillations, parading performances by the No BS! Brass Band and lots more in addition to the music listed here.

For fans eyeing one of these days and not both, single-day tickets are now on sale for $75 alongside the $135 two-day passes via the Eaux Claires site. Camping passes are now sold out, though.

For someone who recently acted like he didn’t know what Spotify was, Prince sure learned the streaming landscape quickly. On Thursday morning, he pulled his music from every music streaming service except Tidal, Jay Z’s new service.

“Prince’s publisher has asked all streaming services to remove his catalog. We have cooperated with the request, and hope to bring his music back as soon as possible,” said Prince’s Spotify page.

A copy of the Spotify page was distributed by Prince’s publicist. Apple Music and Rdio also have removed Prince's music.

Prince has been super-protective of his music, videos and even image. He has kept his legal team busy trying to keep unauthorized use of his work off YouTube and elsewhere on the Internet.

Prince hooked up with Tidal in May to broadcast his Rally 4 Peace concert from Baltimore. Tidal boasts sizable royalty payments to artists, reportedly more than 75 percent of revenue.  

The Purple One’s request does not affect songs he’s written that have been recorded by others such as “Manic Monday” by the Bangles, “The Glamourous Life” by Sheila E and “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor.
