Mumford & Sons Announce 2013 'Gentlemen Of The Road Stopover' Shows

Mumford & Sons are very pleased to announce details of a series of 'Gentlemen of the Road Stopover.' Shows for 2013.
Following on from last year's incredibly successful Stopover series, which featured all-day outdoor events in Huddersfield, Galway, Portland ME, Bristol VA, Dixon IL, Monterey CA, and Dungog (Australia), Mumford & Sons return with the announcement of five more Stopover events for 2013, with this year's entertainment expanding to a Friday night concert, followed by an all-day Saturday event. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and the local people will happen in and around each of the towns.

The first of these outdoor events will take place in the UK at Convent Fields in Lewes on the 19th and 20th July, and will again feature a supporting line-up curated by the band. A limited number of camping tickets will be made available to fans when purchasing tickets.

Mumford & Sons are pleased to announce that Vampire Weekend will be headlining on Friday 19th July for an evening Stopover show, with the full day event headlined by Mumford & Sons on Saturday the 20th. The Vaccines, Mystery Jets, Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit and The Very Best Soundsystem will form the support line-up to be picked across both days, with more acts to be announced.

Mumford & Sons: "As Pep Guardiola would probably say, keeping possession of the ball is Rules One, Two and Three of football. As Mumford & Sons would definitely say, Rules One, Two and Three of being a band are: Play Live.

"The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers are all about live music. We get to put them on in towns not normally frequented by touring bands in buses or splitter vans. We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud, explore them and enjoy what they have to offer, and then we try to bring a party without leaving too much of a trail of destruction in our wake.

"It's a real privilege that being in Mumford & Sons has allowed us to be able to shine a light on these towns, places that sometimes don't get the love they deserve, and to be the facilitators of great musical coming-togethers. We actually get to put on our own shows. Which means that we get to ask our favourite bands to come and play a show with us, where we just get to watch them play all day. Five times in one summer too. Badass.

"But there's another rule that applies to both football and music. Doing the Stopovers means that we get to invite a whole bunch of other people to watch these bands with us. And that, the shared experience, is basically all that live music is about.
We're really excited to be doing more Stopovers and we can't wait to see as many of you as possible this summer! M, W, B & T"
Weekend tickets go on sale from 11:00am on Friday 8th February - from - for o75 + o20 for limited camping tickets.

The band are also pleased to announce that they will be returning to the US and Canada this Summer for four more weekend GOTR Stopover shows. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros will headline the Friday evening events, with Mumford & Sons headlining the full day shows.

A full supporting bill featuring The Vaccines, Old Crow Medicine Show, Hey Rosetta!, fun., Alabama Shakes, Dan Mangan, Willy Mason, Half Moon Run, Those Darlins, and Bear's Den will be selected across these events, with more acts to be announced.
