Mumford & Sons folk-rock Walla Walla in August

Posted By on Mon, Mar 2, 2015 at 10:35 AM

Get this: The British folk-rockers Mumford & Sons, one of the best-selling bands of the last few years, are coming to Walla Walla as part of their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover tour Aug. 14-15.

Bands playing with them include Foo Fighters, the Flaming Lips, Jenny Lewis, the Vaccines, Dawes, tUnE-yArDs, James Vincent McMorrow, JEFF The Brotherhood, Blake Mills and more. Basically, this is one of the biggest festival-esque tours to ever stop through the city of nearly 32,000 people.

Mumford & Sons have purposefully chosen to promote their upcoming album by descending on towns off the beaten tour path.

The other American stopovers take place in Salida, Colorado; Waverly, Iowa; and Seaside Heights, New Jersey — all small towns across the country. This is the second time Mumford & Sons have embarked on a stopover tour, last doing so in 2012.

Tickets will cost $199 for the two-day outdoor event happening on the Whitman College athletic fields. Tickets go on sale Friday. On-site camping is free with registration.

It’s a nearly three-hour drive to Walla Walla from Spokane. Not bad at all to see some of the biggest acts around.
