Peach Music Festival Features Allman Brothers, Black Crowes, Grace Potter
The Allman Brothers Band will bring back its Peach Music Festival this summer for the second year in a row, and the Black Crowes and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals join them as headliners.
The festival will be held at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain near Scranton, Pennsylvania on August 15-18 of this year. In addition to the headliners, the lineup features Jamioe’s Jasssz Band, Railroad Earth, Rusted Root, Galactic, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Bob Weir & RatDog, among others. Weir is reforming with RatDog for the festival and also will perform a solo “brunch” set on Sunday. Other than that, the daily schedule hasn’t yet been nailed down, though it is known that the Allman Brothers will play two sets during the festival.
“The first Peach Festival was as great of a success as we could have asked for,” said the Allman Brothers in a press release. “The overwhelming response from both the audience and artists to continue has exceeded our expectations. We are very excited that Bob Weir & RatDog have decided to join us this year in Scranton along with many other talented musicians. Year two will be even better than the inaugural Peach Music Festival, we cannot wait to play Scranton again.”
The festival is presented by Live Nation, and Geoff Gordon, regional president of Live Nation Philadelphia, spoke about what fans can expect at this year’s festival.
“We’ve put together a festival that is a truly amazing outdoor summer concert experience: great music over multiple stages and camping in the mountains with some of the greatest fans in the world,” Gordon said in a statement. “If you didn’t come out last year, we hope to see you this summer at the Peach.”
Only four-day passes will be sold for the event, with no single-day tickets being made available.
