The revolution (and the Stopovers) will not be ticketed!
Fans visiting the four small cities set to host the Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in the U.S. and Canada this summer are in for a special treat.
The weekend-long music events, hosted and curated by Mumford & Sons, feature a dozen other top performers including Fun., Alabama Shakes, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. The Stopovers showcase local artisans, vendors and regional foods, highlighting the unique qualities of the host communities, which in 2013 include Simcoe, Ontario (Canada); Troy, Ohio; Guthrie, Oklahoma; and St. Augustine, Florida. Thanks to a partnership between Gentlemen of the Road and New York-based entertainment company 'ZinePak, the fan experience will be in full swing long before concertgoers arrive in town.
In lieu of traditional paper tickets, all 135,000-plus fans attending the stopovers will receive a "passport" guide, commemorative ticket, and wristband created by 'ZinePak. The passports, which are customized for each city and feature variable data for ticketholders, include 24 pages of editorial about the artists, the host city, and local businesses.
Enhancing the fan ticketing experience was a natural progression for 'ZinePak, which has been adding value to recorded music with it magazine-meets-CD configuration since January 2011.
