Mumford & Sons played their final UK show before they headline Reading & Leeds later this month this weekend, joined by Primal Scream, The Maccabees and others as well as a 30,000-strong crowd in Aviemore. Here’s how it all went down…
Another Scottish act, Glasgow duo Honeyblood were also impressive.

Here’s Lianne La Havas, friend of Prince and Mumfords alike, playing a very large guitar.
Mumford and Sons’ guitarist Winston Marshall is also a big fan of The Maccabees. “We just did an American run with them and their new record’s fucking great,” he told NME.
It’s all White on the night for guitarist brothers Felix and Hugo.
Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie had to kill a solid gold leopard to make that jacket.

Mumford and Sons headlined the Saturday night of Gentlemen of the Road in Aviemore.

Marcus Mumford was delighted by the beauty if the band’s Aviemore surroundings, saying: “Just look at this place, come on!”
Ted Dwane shows that Este from Haim isn’t the only person who can pull off bass face.
Before ‘Awake My Soul’, keyboardist Ben Lovett invited the crowd to “sing a song for the whole highlands together.”
Before ‘Roll Away Your Stone’, Marcus Mumford said: “It feels like the part of the weekend where we just have fun. We’re not gonna worry about what we sound like and you’re not gonna worry about what we sound like, we’re just gonna have a little dance together, yeah?”
