We’re proud to announce our participation at the Mumford and Sons Gentlemen of the Road Troy Stopover Downtown Street Festival! We’ll be playing the Downtown Street Festival Stage 1 on Friday, August 30th at Midnight (technically the morning of the 31st), and again on Saturday, August 31st at 430PM.
WHAT IS A STOPOVER?
In 2012 Mumford and Sons began hosting their Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, a global series of events in small cities and towns around the world. It is a music festival that celebrates local people, food and culture, where everyone pitches in and everybody gets something back.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTOWN STREET FESTIVAL?
A big part of the Stopover event is the Downtown Street Festival where Mumford and Sons literally turn the downtowns of these cities into a part of the festival grounds. There will be great entertainment, lots of food and beverages, arts, crafts, and just generally tons of fun. The Downtown Street Festival is open for free to anyone with a Stopover Passport and for a $5 charge to anyone without!

To our loyal fans: One of the members of Red Wanting Blue is retiring, but it’s not one of the guys. As seen on the Late Show with David Letterman, in our “Where You Wanna Go” video, and on roads throughout America, RWB’s Magic Bus is about to hang up her walking shoes.
We thought about trying to give the bus to the American Folk Art Museum, but then we thought she’d be better off with actual American folk, so we are offering one lucky RWB fanatic the chance to outbid all others and own a part of the band’s history.
The Magic Bus comes complete with every trinket we’ve installed in it over the years, along with plenty of good time rock n’ roll vibes. Are you the one to give her a great new home? Visit our auction on eBay Motors for more info!
We’ll be out on the road again soon, and while our new bus does takes up more space in the physical world, the Magic Bus will always take up the most space in our hearts.
