Mumford & Sons and Gentlemen of the Road are very pleased to announce details of a very special weekend of live music and entertainment in Aviemore this Summer.

The British rock band, who will release their third album ‘Wilder Mind’ on the 4th May, will bring their two-day music and arts festival to The Dell of Rothiemurchus in Aviemore over the weekend of the 31st July and 1st August. It will feature live performances from the Stopover hosts Mumford & Sons + Ben Howard, Scotland's own Primal Scream, The Maccabees, Lianne La Havas, and Honeyblood, with plenty more still to be announced over the coming months.

Johnnie Grant of Rothiemurchus:  “We are very flattered that Mumford and Sons have chosen Rothiemurchus and Aviemore for the UK leg of their Stopover tour, and we’re looking forward to welcoming them and their fans to this special part of the world.
“It’s a pleasure to be able to provide the Dell of Rothiemurchus for this Concert. It will be a great opportunity for the people of Badenoch and Strathspey to make new friends from around the world.  We’re particularly grateful  to the members of the Rothiemurchus team who have managed to keep a secret in advance of the launch.”

2015 welcomes the third year of The Stopovers that have taken place across the globe, including some hugely successful events in the USA, Canada and Australia. Mumford & Sons will curate the weekend’s entertainment with a strong emphasis on celebrating the diverse businesses and culture of Aviemore, and the greater Badenoch and Strathspey community.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 6th March through the Gentlemen of the Road website:
www.gentlemenoftheroad.com/tickets.
Tickets will also be available locally in person from The Old Bridge Inn in Aviemore, and the Ironworks in Inverness.

The Stopovers rely on the local people for their ideas and suggestions to ensure a weekend that can be enjoyed and experienced by the whole community and beyond.

Quotes:

Robert Hicks: We’re overwhelmed that Mumford & Sons have chosen the Highlands, and in particular Aviemore as the only UK and indeed, European leg of their touring Stopover Festival. The Aviemore Stopover is an unique opportunity for the Badenoch & Strathspey area and the Highlands as a whole to shout about what an incredible place we live in. Being announced alongside Stopovers being staged across the US and Australia bringing us a truly global audience.
This is a real highlight for me and the Beyond team, having worked with Mumford & Sons since they toured the Highlands back in 2009 and numerous times since’
