There wasn’t a lot of home-grown talent in the lineup when Mumford & Sons first announced the lineup for the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover festival it will present in Seaside Heights, June 5-6. But there is now. A downtown stage has been added, to run from June 4 to 6, and many Jersey acts — including Deal Casino, Nicole Atkins, Brick + Mortar, Thomas Wesley Stern and River City Extension — will be showcased on it. And there will be no admission charge for those wanting to see only these bands.
Artists previously confirmed for June 5-6 include The Flaming Lips, Alabama Shakes, Dawes and Jenny Lewis; a schedule is still not available for these groups. But there’s a little more detail about the downtown stage, which will be at Ocean Terrace.
Here is the schedule:
JUNE 4, 5 P.M.
Von Mons, Garden State Line, Deal Casino, Accidental Seabirds and Tramps Like Us (Bruce Springsteen tribute)
JUNE 5, 11 A.M.
