TOP band Mumford and Sons are set to entertain thousands at Huddersfield's Greenhead Park.
But ahead of their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover, the band popped by yesterday to experience the town for the first time.
Marcus Mumford, Ted Dwane, Ben Lovett and Winston Marshall have organised the one-day festival to celebrate towns not heavily toured by bands.
And having explored Greenhead Park and the Byram Arcade the band said they were excited to return on June 2.
Winston said: “The event is going to be amazing.
“We have travelled a bit of Yorkshire but had never been to Huddersfield and all of us are really looking forward to performing here.
“We explored the Byram Arcade, Greenhead Park and walked through the town today.
“The Arcade was so vibey and we did some vintage shopping at The Left Bank.
“It is an amazing town and we have had a great time.”
Sporting Huddersfield Giants tops, Winston continued: “I didn’t know that in Huddersfield you were either a rugby fan or a football fan.
“I like both.
“We want Huddersfield Town to win the play-offs.
“The vibe would be amazing at the gig as well if they won.”
