Move over, Dave Matthews Band Caravan — there’s a new folk group with a traveling tour in town.

Though probably not your town. Mumford & Sons are adding new small-town dates to their Gentlemen of the Road tour, thus reviving their “Stopovers” scheme from last year. And this time, they’re bringing some new friends along for the ride.

The two-day Stopovers — planned in what Mumford & Sons says are “towns not normally frequented by touring bands in busses or splitter vans” — will feature a range of artists, from Vampire Weekend to the Vaccines.

“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,” the band said in a statement.
