Gentlemen Of The Road the 2015 Stopover series, organized by British folk/ indie rock band Mumford & Sons, is hitting the road this Summer. Selected cities include: Seaside Heights (New Jersey) on June 5th and 6th, Waverly (Iowa) on June 19th and 20th, Aviemore (UK) on July 31st and August 1st, Walla Walla (Washington) on August 14th and 15th, and Salida (Colorado) on August 21st and 22nd.
Gentlemen Of The Road aims to bring the music festival experience to small towns that tend to be overlooked by touring acts. Not only does GOTR bring festivals to these smaller cities, but the focus of the festival is to celebrate the local people, food, and culture of that particular city. Since 2012 GOTR has brought the music festival experience to cities across the country. Each Stopover contains a unique lineup from the other locations, but tends to have some overlapping acts. Lineups for each location are listed below, with more acts to follow at a later date.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4snhjdIOVS8]
