So what exactly is a “stopover?” The band explains…

 We come into town Friday, stop over for the night, start early on Saturday, play music all day with our friends at an amazing, unique location. One site with two stages alternating sets with some of our favorite acts from around the world. And then, once the main event is over, we curate a series of afterparties and events throughout the town. We bring in local food and vendors to help us celebrate the town and the people.

Tickets go on sale this Friday for all of the stopovers with the exception of Dixon, which goes on sale the following Saturday (June 9).
