Mumford & Sons Announce Five Mini-Festivals for 2013!

Stopover Towns

So last year, Mumford & Sons, developed a little festival project called the “Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers”. These mini-festivals took place in towns not normally frequented by touring bands. Well, Mumford & Sons are back on the road this summer and fall with Stopovers scheduled for the UK, Canada, and the US. They’ll be joined at all stops by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and The Vaccines. Other special guests will show up at each spot (see below).

Tickets: Passes to each two day show will about $109 (£75 in the UK). There will also be camping available at every stop except for St. Augustine.

While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
