The Futures Forum Keynote: Team Mumford & Sons

From humble beginnings as teenagers honing their craft on the UK’s grassroots venues circuit, London-born Mumford & Sons have, over the past 13 years, risen to become one of the world’s most in-demand live acts.

The band’s recent fourth concert tour, in support of 2018’s electronica-influenced Delta, reflected that album’s evolution in its 360°, in-the-round format – and became their biggest and most successful tour to date, with the nearly 100 arena and festival shows on four continents drawing critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.

In 2020 the Grammy Award-winning group will star in a film about their visit to Senegal to play the Blues du Fleuve festival, Return to Podor, while founding member Ben Lovett is set to open his second venue in London, Lafeyette, next month.

At Futures Forum 2020, Lovett will join Mumford & Sons’ long-time manager, Adam Tudhope (Everybody’s), and booking agent Lucy Dickins (WME) to reflect on the band’s journey from banjo-plucking west London folkies to global superstars, with DJ and friend of the band, John Kennedy (Radio X), providing the questions.
