Band set for Wakarusa festival in Arkansas

Mumford and Sons have confirmed their first live date for 2011 – set for Arkansas in June.

The band will play at the Wakarusa festival in Ozark in the US state on June 4. My Morning Jacket, Langhorne Slim and Sharon Jones are among the other acts on the bill.

The band had been expected by some to shy away from gigging action in 2011 following an intense touring schedule last year, but the announcement suggests they will be playing at least some festival shows this summer.
