Mumford & Sons to Play Monterey County Fairgrounds
May 29, 2012
Mumford & Sons are hardcore John Steinbeck fans—the U.K. outfit even toured the Steinbeck Center in Salinas a few years back. On Aug. 25, the infectious bluegrass-Americana foursome will perform its debut on the soil that was once home to the literary icon.
Dubbed "Gentlemen of the Road: Monterey Stopover," the Monterey County Fairgrounds 1-day event headlined by Mumford will also feature Gogol Bordello, Two Gallants, Grouplove, The Very Best and Apache Relay (check out band videos below).
The mission: Join us this summer for a series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers at handpicked locations around the world. Each Stopover is a day-long event, celebrating the music, food and people of the places we're visiting. We'll be bringing a full lineup of some of our favorite bands from around the world, and curating events that combine a music festival and local gathering into one epic party. We plan to start early, and go late, taking the party from the stage to the town. Please come join us if you can. It'll be a whole lot of fun. -Mumford & Sons
