The past six years, Montage Mountain near Scranton has been home to the Peach Music Festival, which quickly built a strong reputation and became one of the “must attend” summer musical gatherings in the mid-Atlantic.

This year, the festival is celebrating its seventh anniversary July 19-22, and the lineup is impressive.

The festival that was inspired by The Allman Brothers Band – who have since disbanded and some members have passed away – has attracted thousands of people to northeast Pennsylvania for four days and three nights of music, art, camping and so much more.

Among heavy hitters for this year’s event are Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band, Gov’t Mule (playing two sets including Dark Side of the Mule), Dicky Betts & His Band, Umphrey’s McGee, Moe. and Little Feat performing Waiting for Columbus featuring Turkuaz horns, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and many others.

The festival is set around a water park, giving off a strong family vacation vibe. It’s a family friendly event for all ages, and the case of musical talent scheduled for the weekend is enough to please even the pickiest of music lovers.

While camping is a primary option for most festival goers, there are many hotels and motels near the resort to meet your accommodation needs, no matter the budget. Information on camping passes, nearby hotels and more is listed on the festival’s website.
