British folk rock band Mumford & Sons is set to host four summer music events across the U.S. in promotion of their upcoming sophomore album. Cities to take part in the events this August include Portland ME, Bristol VA/TN, Dixon IL and Monterey, CA.
The band describes every stop as “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.”
Featuring popular singles “Little Lion Man” and “The Cave,” Mumford & Sons’ 2009 debut album Sigh No More peaked at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and UK Albums Chart.
