Gentlemen of the Road - Lewes Stopover Day 1

In 2012 we began hosting our Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, a global series of events in small cities and towns around the world. We spent months selecting unique places, creating venues, building the lineups, planning the aftershows, and getting to know the local people who helped make the whole thing work. The results were some of the most amazing and memorable shows we've ever played – and we've played a lot of shows! We hope those of you who made it had as much fun as we did.
This year we've expanded the lineups, changed the format, and worked to improve the experience in ways big and small. We have new towns, new countries, new artists, and new campsites that will become an intimate part of each event. Plus tons of surprises you'll have to see for yourselves! We really couldn't be more excited. But the spirit of the project remains: a music festival that celebrates local people, food and culture, where everyone pitches in and everybody gets something back.
Please join us if you can.

We arrived at the venue very excited and a bit late! The Lineup for day 1 was Youth Lagoon, White Denim, British Sea Power and Vampire Weekend. We arrived while British Sea Power were on!

We grabbed our lovely ribbon wristbands,

And a drink, my drink of choice was Rekorderlig Wild Berry Cider, something I'd never tried before but rather enjoyed! Really sweet and fruity, a good one to try if like me you don't like the taste of beer or cider. 

We found a good spot and got comfy.

When Vampire Weekend finally came on the crowd went wild! Everyone was very excited and the atmosphere was buzzing.

We managed to creep a bit closer to the stage and got lost in the crowd. 

It was a wonderful day and we're really looking forward to day 2!
