Mumford and Sons Announce Gentleman Of The Road Stopover 2013 Towns and Bands Including Vampire Weekend and fun.

Last year Mumford and Sons threw a series of multi-band festivals dubbed “Gentleman Of The Road Stopovers” in small cities across the U.S. and in the U.K. The band described the events as such…

“The Gentlemen of the Road Stopover is based loosely upon our favourite festivals like Colorado’s Telluride Bluegrass and Scotland’s Loopallu Festivals. We want to stop off in towns not usually heavily toured by bands, and celebrate the people, food and music that inhabit them. We’re keen to promote the town’s local businesses, and we’ll be using the local bars and venues for aftershow parties, whilst working closely with the local people to get everyone involved in making these shows spectacular.

There will be a host of our friends playing too, and the vibe falls somewhere between ‘travelling Victorian circus’ and ‘Victorian travelling circus’. It should be a whole lot of fun.”

Mumford and Sons will host another batch of Gentleman Of The Road Stopovers in 2013 and have just revealed where they will take place. Lewes, UK; Simcoe, Ontario; Troy, Ohio; Guthrie, Oklahoma and St. Augustine, Florida will all host Stopovers. Ticketing information can be found on the Stopover website.
