Mumford & Sons, Miranda Lambert to play Merriweather Post Pavilion

Well, it's not Virgin Mobile FreeFest, or not yet anyway. But Mumford & Sons will perform at Merriweather Post Pavilion this summer.

Promoter IMP announced Wednesday the band will perform there June 9. It seems like it's the band's first performance in Maryland. They performed at the 9:30 club last year.

The band was nominated for Grammy awards earlier this year, but lost to Esperanza Spalding and Neil Young. 

IMP also announced Miranda Lambert will perform at MPP July 15. Tickets for both shows, which start at $45 and $55, respectively, go on sale Friday on Ticketfly. 

The line-up for Virgin Mobile FreeFest won't be announced until this summer. Let the lobbying begin.

Was anyone able to get tix other than the scalpers? I started clicking at 10am sharp, refreshed for 45 minutes and never got through. PLEASE figure out a way for the fans to pay face value.

Will, tickets don't go on sale until tomorrow. That may be your issue
