Mumford & Sons announce Aug. 4 concert on Portland’s Eastern Promenade

Mumford & Sons announced on Tuesday morning the details of a series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in the United States this August, starting with an August 4 date on the Eastern Promenade in Portland, Maine, featuring other artists including St. Vincent, Dawes, the Maccabees, Apache Relay, Simon Felice and Haim. Gates will open at noon and music starts at 2 p.m. Tickets, priced at $59-$69, go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 1 exclusively at gentlemenoftheroad.com. 

The Stopovers combine the intimacy of a community celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival. Featuring local vendors and activities, each Stopover will begin with a concert at a unique site and end with a series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people. Mumford & Sons will headline the main event, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists curated by the band themselves.

These one-day, outdoor events will take place in four carefully-selected and unique locations across America, including the Eastern Promenade in Portland, ME; downtown Bristol, VA/TN; Page Park in Dixon, IL; and the legendary Fairgrounds in Monterey, CA.

Tickets to the Stopovers will be $69, with no additional service fees or hidden charges.  A very limited quantity of $59 tickets with no additional fees or charges will be available beginning June 1 for the Portland concert on a first-come, first-served basis. These tickets will sell out so please plan accordingly. Each ticket will include a beautifully designed commemorative passport ticket, and an exclusive compilation album featuring performances taken from across the four shows.
