Mumford & Sons At Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Mumford & Sons have called up a group of their “Gentlemen of the Road” buddies for a special show at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Along with the British folk rock band, the gig features Vampire Weekend, Ben Howard and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes.

Plus, Haim and Bear’s Den will take the stage.

“What are you doing, oh say … Saturday 6th July? Well, sure hope you’re free,” Mumford & Sons says in a post on the band’s website.

NME points out that in addition to the July 6 gig marking Mumford & Sons’ biggest ever headline show, the performance is also the first headline concert booked at the renovated Olympic venue.
