Peach Music Festival returns to Montage Mountain July 25-28

The past seven 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 eighth anniversary July 25-28, and the lineup is nothing short of 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 & Friends, Trey Anastasio Band, The String Cheese Incident, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Moe., Greensky Bluegrass, Blues Traveler, 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.

The Peach campgrounds will open on Thursday, July 25 at 10 a.m. and will close at noon on Monday, July 29.

A four-day general admission pass to the festival is $169, or $219 with camping. A four-day “reserved” pass, which provides a reserved seat in the 100 level during each night’s headlining act and the artist performing directly before the headliner, is $349 or $399 with camping.

A four-day VIP pass is $550, or $600 with camping. The VIP pass includes: access to the festival grounds, access to the VIP club, a reserved seat in the first 30 rows of the 100 level, VIP only sets featuring Peach artists, access to VIP viewing are close to main stage, access to VIP second stage viewing area, three meal vouchers, complimentary water and sports drinks, drink specials, private restrooms, limited edition Peach Festival poster, festival laminate, festival t-shirt and parking.

A super VIP pass is also available for $1,100, or $1,150 with camping. It includes everything in the standard VIP package along with extra perks including drink tickets, golf cart transportation, and more.

Single day tickets, which do not include camping, are $79.

Tickets for children are $75. Children under the age of 5 do not require a pass.
