I don't think they'll be all too recognisable in a field of 60,000 people.

You will be able to spot the mumford fans in abundant. Hoping for some better bands to play Hyde Park this year, saw Pearl Jam last year and Neil Young the year before.

I mean I'm no fan of them. Don't really know what kind of people Arcade Fire have support them though in the first place. Doesn't seem so out of place to me, I'm sure it'll be a big ticket mover having those two bands together. Would have been cool to see them have someone a bit more interesting I will agree.

I'd love to see this gig, might try and get tickets as they go on sale just before my birthday. Arcade Fire, Beirut and The Vaccines would be sweet. Mumford & Sons are a good support over here I think, they would get the crowd really ready for Arcade Fire, not saying they are the best choice or something I'd be dying to see at this gig, but I think it will work well.

Proud of The Vaccines though, that's such a big deal for them to get. Very cool.

Why is everyone hating on Mumford and Sons?

Is the fan base really that different in England than in the US?

Nah I don't think so, they are really adored over here too, but I guess the standard backlash is happening a bit now. They've been around and played on the radio a lot over here for longer than over there.

And obviously some people may not like them. I don't think they should be main support for such a huge gig as this.
