The Lumineers always eat healthily on tour, indulging in humus, Greek yogurt and drinking Kombucha

The Lumineers eat healthy on tour.

The 'Stubborn Love' band are playing at festivals across the world this summer, and don't find it hard to stay healthy on the road as they request lots of vitamin filled foods on their rider.

Bass player Ben Wahamaki exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "We are really into Kombucha [sweet tea] and health food like humus, Greek yogurt. We just got a juicer and that's been the greatest discovery of our lives."

The US folk band- which also includes Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites, Neyla Pekarek and Stelth Ulvang - look forward to festivals because it means they get a chance to hang out with other bands.

Ben added: "I have been really busy trying to watch bands, it's hard to find time, trying to save all your energy for your set but it's really fun running around, being a fan."

The band are best known for their track 'Ho Hey', but insist they're not tired of playing it, despite singing it a number of times in a day.

Ben said: "I still like the song, but I also like those moments when something shakes you on stage, you know, trip over a wire or something happens and you remember it's a fresh experience. That's the first time you're singing it that night, to that crowd."
