Yacht Club DJs to hit the Road with Mumford & Sons

Yacht Club DJs

Yacht Club DJs are hitting the road (via US airways) with Mumford & Sons for a series of SOLD OUT Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in the States!

Ain’t no party like a Yacht Club party and now, Australia’s favourite mash up duo set their sights on the land of the free. Off the back of last year’s famed Dungog Stopover Festival, Grammy award winners Mumford & Sons have personally invited Yacht Club DJs to join them in Simcoe, Troy, Guthrie and St. Augustine for a series of SOLD OUT Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers.  

Armed with their proverbial decks and a bottomless pit of face-melting tunes, Yacht Club DJs will take to the stage alongside the likes of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, HAIM, The Walkmen and The Vaccines - the only Australian act to be invited on the bill. 

"At first, it was bit of an odd match to be asked by Mumford & Sons to do Gentleman of the Road in Dungog, but everyone was just up for a good time,” says Yacht Club co-conspirator Guy Chappell. “It’s one of the best festivals we have ever played, so we were stoked to be asked to do the US Stopovers as well.”  

"We get to travel random locations and places you wouldn't necessary go on tour,” Gaz Harrison adds. “Last time, in Dungog, it ended with the Mumford and Edward Sharpe guys dancing on stage with us, so we’re hoping the US shows will be just as good."

Having played major festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Parklife, Groovin’ The Moo and Falls Festival, Yacht Club DJs sure know how to please a crowd, with their fearless repertoire spanning 60’s blues, 90’s pop, Disney soundtracks, death metal and everything in between. 

Their recent Mayhem Tour saw a slew of sold out shows across the country, and only minor misdemeanours (that we know of); spurred on by latest mixtape Find Me A Macchiato Pronto, available here: http://soundcloud.com/yachtclubdjsmusic/find-me-a-macchiato-pronto
