Gentlemen of the Road St. Augustine Stopover September 13th and 14th, 2013

 

The Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Tour will descend on downtown St. Augustine, September 13 and 14, 2013 featuring Gentlemen of the Road Stopoverinternationally acclaimed band Mumford & Sons. The main event will be held at Francis Field, but will engage the St. Augustine community as a whole.

The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers will be held at handpicked locations around the world. Each Stopover is a complete event, celebrating the music, food and people of the city involved. The event will bring a full lineup of outstanding bands from around the world, and curate events that combine a music festival and local gathering into one epic party. The festivities start early, and go late, taking the party from the stage to the town.

Mumford and Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road St. Augustine Stopover will be their first ever appearance in Florida, and the band wanted to ensure their initial trip to the Sunshine State would be memorable at the perfect locality. While researching potential locations, a “lightbulb went off” when event producers looked into St. Augustine, and the celebrations planned for the city’s 450th. Upon a site visit, the history, culture and pride of the city was compelling to the band, event producers and promoters.

And so St. Augustine was chosen amongst hundreds of other cities as a 2013 Gentlemen of the Road Stopover. Producers cite the evident honoring of the city’s past while focusing on progress and forward movement, including multiple green initiatives as one of the main factors in St. Augustine’s selection. Event Producer Mike Luba noted that the operation of the city of St. Augustine “is a model for other cities to adopt, and if that happened, the world would be a better place.”

This event will bring together many different local entities in its production, including the City of St. Augustine, the St. Johns County Cultural Events Division, the St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches Visitors & Convention Bureau, and The Cultural Council among countless local businesses and organizations. The support of the community is vital to the event’s success, as it will bring scores of visitors to the area and showcase St. Augustine’s rich history and natural beauty.

Other bands scheduled to appear at the St. Augustine Gentlemen of the Road Stopover include Grammy nominated band fun., Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Vaccines, Willy Mason, Bear’s Den, Half Moon Run and Those Darlins.
