Mumford & Sons Chat About 2015 Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers

What is a Stopover?

A Stopover is a celebration of a real place, with real people. It’s a bridge between the culture of a music festival and actual culture as lived by real-life people. We bring the music, the stage, the flags and the fans; everything else belongs to the town. Their energy and enthusiasm, their civic pride…their favorite local beer. We’ve found it to be a beautiful thing – maybe the most beautiful thing that we do.

Since 2012 we have ‘Stopped-over’ in tiny rural towns (Dungog, Australia), small cities (Portland, Maine), places rich with history (Bristol, Virginia) or ancient tradition (Lewes, UK), and tiny gems just waiting to be discovered (Dixon, Illinois). We had 8,000 campers on a levee on the banks of the Great Miami River (Troy, Ohio), and even more on one of Canada’s oldest fairgrounds (Simcoe, Ontario). We’ve played by the edge of the North Atlantic (Galway, Ireland), and on an endless expanse of dusty red clay in the heart of America (Guthrie, Oklahoma). Each town imprints its own experience onto the Stopover, and each Stopover is unique.

Our journey as Gentlemen of the Road will take us back across America, to Scotland, and beyond. We have more camping, bigger acts, and bigger plans than ever before. We couldn’t be more proud and excited to introduce you to our latest group of amazing towns. We’d of course love to see you at all of our shows, but if you can see just one, and you can make it…to Walla Walla, or Salida, or Aviemore, or Waverly, or Seaside Heights…we promise you’ll get more back than you can possibly imagine.

These are the Stopover rules:

Arrive early, stay late

Don’t miss out on camping

Hear as many bands as you can

Take the party from the stage to the town

Eat the local food, drink the local drink

Say a friendly hello to new faces

Have as much fun as humanly possible

See you on the road,

M&S/GOTR
