Mumford and Sons have announced details of this summer's Gentlemen of the Road Stopover shows.

The band will play five Stopover events in 2013, with the shows taking the form of a Friday night gig followed by an all day event on the Saturday.

The only UK date takes place at Convent Fields in Lewes on July 19-20. Vampire Weekend headline on July 19, with shows from Mumford & Sons, The Vaccines, Mystery Jets, Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit and The Very Best Soundsystem on July 20.

Tickets go on sale at 11am (GMT) on February 8. Tickets cost £75 + £20 for limited camping tickets. For more information and tickets visit: Gentlemenoftheroad.com

In a statement, the band said: "It's a real privilege that being in Mumford & Sons has allowed us to be able to shine a light on these towns, places that sometimes don't get the love they deserve, and to be the facilitators of great musical coming-togethers."

They continue: "We actually get to put on our own shows. Which means that we get to ask our favourite bands to come and play a show with us, where we just get to watch them play all day. Five times in one summer too. Badass."

Four North American Stopovers will follow the UK date, with a supporting bill that includes Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Vaccines, Old Crow Medicine Show, Hey Rosetta!, fun., Alabama Shakes, Dan Mangan, Willy Mason, Half Moon Run, Those Darlins, Bear's Den and more.

The shows will take place in Simcoe, Canada (August 23-24), Troy, Ohio (August 30-31), Guthrie, Oklahoma (September 6-7) and St Augustine, Florida (September 13-14).

The 2013 Stopover shows follow similar events last year in Huddersfield, Galway, Portland ME, Bristol VA, Dixon IL, Monterey CA, and Dungog, Australia.
