SEASIDE HEIGHTS - Mumford and Sons will headline a summer music festival in Seaside Heights.

Borough Administrator Christopher Vaz made the announcement at a news conference Monday morning. Other bands appearing at the festival include Alabama Shakes, The Flaming Lips, The Vaccines, The Maccabees and many more.

This is all part of the Mumford and Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road Stopover music tour, which “combines the intimacy of a community celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival.”

“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,” says the band.

The Seaside Heights Stopover will be on June 5 and 6. Mumford and Sons will headline the June 6 show.

Tickets will be available for purchase beginning March 6 at 10 a.m.
