With their third studio LP, Wilder Mind, in hand, Mumford and Sons are heading our way this November. Their Sydney performance, happening on November 14, will take the form of a mini-festival in The Domain, personally curated by Marcus and his band mates.
Titled Gentlemen of the Road, the event is an Australian extension of the tour that has been taking the Brit rockers to small, off-the-beaten-track towns all over the UK and the US. So far, they’ve invited the likes of The Flaming Lips, James Vincent McMorrow, Primal Scream and the Foo Fighters to join them.
Their Sydney lineup is bringing us a slew of big names, both local and international. From far away, there’ll be UK songwriter and 2015 NME Solo Artist of the Year Jake Bugg, in his only Australian show; synth poppers from Baltimore Future Islands; and UK indie pop rockers The Vaccines.
And three lucky local acts have also scored spots on the bill — Brisbane’s The Jungle Giants, who are currently touring their second album, Speakerzoid; 2014 triple j Unearthed Artist of the Year, Meg Mac; and Brisbane’s Art of Sleeping, who’ll be opening the show with their compelling folk-rock.
