Word spread quickly as soon as it was announced that Grammy-Award winning band Mumford and Sons chose St. Augustine, Fl for their Gentlemen of the Road stopover tour.
Agustin Inn and all of St. Augustine’s bed and breakfast inns and hotels sold out within minutes! Not only are the rooms fully booked but right during Mumford’s performance of their famous hit “I will wait” during the 2013 Grammy Awards, the concert was also sold out – That's over 24,000 tickets!
To our excitement the tour will rock downtown St. Augustine September 13th and 14th, 2013. The two-day concert will take place in Francis Field next to the St. Augustine parking garage, which will indeed be filled quickly! Other bands scheduled to appear at the St. Augustine Gentlemen of the Road Stopover include: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Vaccines, Willy Mason, Bear’s Den, Half Moon Run and Those Darlins.
I don’t know about the others, but Agustin Inn has big plans for this event! If you are staying with us this weekend, be prepared for fun from the moment you check in to the moment you depart! The inn has gathered your favorite music and will do a continuous play of Mumford hits all weekend in our dining area. Sounds of Mumford and participating bands will be heard downstairs throughout your stay this very weekend. The decorating is also underway. That’s right! Posters of bands will be viewed through the inn and staff will also be dressed according to theme. Don’t be surprised if you find little British flags on your breakfast plate Sunday morning!
Now here’s the really fun part. There is a contest involved for all our guests staying this September weekend. That’s right – each and every guest will be entered into our Mumford & Sons raffle. Top prizes include a free stay and much more!
This is going to be a major weekend in the nation’s oldest city! The city is planning away and so are we.
Trust that Agustin Inn in beautiful historic St Augustine provides the best location for its guests – literally just steps away from the show and all the action! This means no parking worries or the inconvenience of a shuttle – simply leave your car in our free parking area and walk to the event!
