The one-day, outdoor event in the historic NSW town of Dungog is part of a global series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, which debuted in the UK this June. The Gentlemen Of The Road concept was developed by the members of Mumford & Sons, with the band curating the line-up and overseeing the details of the festival themselves.

"The Gentlemen Of The Road Stopover is based loosely upon our favourite festivals like Colorado's Telluride Bluegrass and Scotland's Loopallu Festivals," the band says. "We want to stop off in towns not usually heavily toured by bands, and celebrate the people, food and music that inhabit them. We're keen to promote the town's local businesses, and we'll be using the local bars and venues for aftershow parties, whilst working closely with the local people to get everyone involved in making these shows spectacular. There will be a host of our friends playing too, and the vibe falls somewhere between 'travelling Victorian circus' and 'Victorian travelling circus'. It should be a whole lot of fun."

Mumford & Sons are readying their new album Babel for worldwide release on September 21, meaning that Australian audiences will be among the first to hear the new songs live. Their new song, 'I Will Wait' has just been released.

Gentlemen Of The Road (A Camping Stopover) will be headlined by Mumford & Sons, and will feature the following acts:
- Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros
- Sarah Blasko
- Matt Corby
- Husky
- Willy Mason
- Yacht Club DJs
