As summer music festivals kick off, so do the announcements from headlining bands, and Mumford & Sons dropped one this morning.

Their record label, Gentlemen of the Road, decided to highlight a few of their other performers in a performance at the intimate Avalon Cafe in the Field of Avalon on Saturday, June 28th.

It's been one whole year since Mumford & Sons headlined Glastonbury Festival, three since they played the Other Stage stage and six since they made their debut appearance. This year they're taking a break from performing duties, however...

Gentlemen of the Road will still be in attendance at the festival this very weekend, where they've curated an eclectic line-up of performers .

The following have been confirmed to appear, with room for some surprises too...

Bear's Den
Michael Kiwanuka
Johnny Flynn
Nick Mulvey
King Charles

The stage opens at 11:30am with a set from GOTR friend and comedian Thomas Gray; another friend and comedian Alfie Brown will be compering the whole event.

If you're heading to Glastonbury make sure you head on down!

While the website gently reminds you that this is a Gentlemen of the Road event and not a Mumford & Sons concert, many who attend are hopeful that Marcus Mumford and his band of hooligans (I kid, I kid) will show up for at least one song.

Maybe they'll show up as featured artists during a couple of performances?
