Mumford And Sons’ Essential Guide To The Bands Playing Their Gentlemen Of The Road Aviemore Stopover

Not content with heading up Reading and Leeds next month, Mumford & Sons are also putting on their own festival next weekend (July 31-August 1) at the Dell of Rothiemurchus, in Scotland’s scenic Cairngorms National Park. The band have been running their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover events since 2012, but this one has the most stellar bill yet, with slots from Primal Scream, The Maccabees, Simian Mobile Disco and many many more. “Putting the line-ups together for these Stopovers is pretty much the best fun you can ever imagine having,” explains bass player Ted Dwane. “As a band it’s a real privilege and we take it pretty seriously.”

‘Serious’ isn’t exactly how you’d describe our chat with the band when we caught up with them at Open’er Festival 2015 to get their guide to each of the acts playing Aviemore. As they explained their relationship with each artist, Marcus and co spilled into funny tales of debauchery and in some cases nudity. Plus, there’s an amazing story of Winston’s failed techno career. Check it out below.
