2015 Special Event – Gentlemen of the Road Salida Stopover

Salida will be the fifth stopover city for the Gentlemen of the Road Salida Stopover on August 21 – 22, 2015. The Stopover includes numerous internationally acclaimed artists, including Grammy award winning artists Mumford & Sons, as well as The Flaming Lips, Dawes, Jenny Lewis, The Vaccines, TuneYards, James Vincent McMorrow, JEFF The Brotherhood, Blake Mills and more to be announced.

This event will combine the intimacy of our community’s celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival. Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday shows. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people will happen in and around the town.

About this year’s upcoming Stopover tour, Mumford & Sons said: “The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers are all about live music. We get to put them on in towns not normally frequented by touring bands in busses or splitter vans. We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud, explore them and enjoy what they have to offer.”

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased locally at the SteamPlant Event Center or at www.gentlemenoftheroad.com/stopovers/Salida. Please visit the website for all ticket details.
