Mumford & Sons @ Coachella 2011 (more by David Andrako)
We come into town Friday, stop over for the night, start early on Saturday, play music all day with our friends at an amazing, unique location. One site with two stages alternating sets with some of our favorite acts from around the world. And then, once the main event is over, we curate a series of afterparties and events throughout the town. We bring in local food and vendors to help us celebrate the town and the people.The first Gentlemen of the Road Stopover took place on June 2 in Huddersfield, UK. The second will happen on Saturday (6/9) in Galway, Ireland. The festival then comes to the United States in August visiting Maine, Virginia/Tennessee, Illinois, and California, with different acts featured on each date.
The Illinois stopover is happening at Page Park in Dixon (roughly 100 miles from downtown Chicago) on August 18, featuring Gogol Bordello, Dawes, Abigail Washburn, The Very Best, Apache Relay, Haim, and you guessed it... Mumford & Sons. Tickets go on sale this Saturday (6/9) at 10AM CST. There are also campsites available for the 17th & 18th.
