Mumford & Sons Announce 2013 'Gentlemen of the Road' Stopovers

EVENTS EXPANDING TO TWO-DAYS AT EACH STOPOVER

Mumford & Sons are pleased to announce the details of the 2013 series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in the UK, US, and Canada this summer.

Each Stopover combines the intimacy of a community celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival. This year the Stopovers are expanding to a Friday night concert followed by an all-day Saturday event. Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday show, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists curated by the band themselves. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people will happen in and around the town.

Like last year, the outdoor events will take place in carefully selected and unique locations across the United States and Canada following a stop in the UK, and will feature a host of internationally acclaimed acts including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Alabama Shakes, fun., The Vaccines, and many more to be announced. This year's host towns include Simcoe, Ontario, Troy, OH; Guthrie, OK; and St. Augustine, FL. In 2012, the band curated seven total GOTR Stopovers: four in the United States, two in the UK, and one in Australia.

Tickets to the Stopovers go on sale at 11 am local time on February 8. The tickets are $109, and will have no additional service fees or hidden charges. Each ticket will include a beautifully-designed, commemorative Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Passport. Campsites are incorporated into each Stopover site, and camping has become an essential part of the Stopover experience and is strongly encouraged. Three-night camping passes begin at $40 per person and can be purchased along with tickets at gentlemenoftheroad.com. For full details, see below.
