The Peach Music Festival, which is hosted by the Allman Brothers, a household name in the music industry, is growing in popularity every year within the music community. Now five years in, the event has gotten bigger and better each summer.
Being that the festival is so new to the scene, many music fans are experiencing all that The Peach Music Festival has to offer for the very first time. If this is the case, then you’re in the right place. Here are the top five things you need to know if you’re heading to the festival for the first time.
It All Started in 2012
Billed as the first ever Allman Brothers inspired music festival, The Peach Music Festival all started in 2012. The long weekend in mid-August is a great chance for fans to be secluded in the mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania while camping and listening to awesome music. The Peach Music Festival offers camping passes to patrons that wish to purchase them as well as single day tickets if a fan is just trying to see a particular artist. There are two main stages, the Peach Stage and the Mushroom Stage so music is never far away. It all gets started on Thursday, August 11th, with The Peach Kick-Off Party and you won’t want to miss it!
When and Where?
The Peach Music Festival located at the Montage Mountain Ski Resort in Scranton, PA. The mountain is transformed in to a water park during the summer months, and from August 11th-14th it is home to a must-see music festival. The venue is known as the Pavilion at Montage Mountain, and with multiple stages at the venue during the festival, there is always live music to enjoy. Did we mention they had a water park?
Water Park and Other Attractions
If you have purchased a four-day pass to The Peach Music Festival then you are granted full access to the massive water park at Montage Mountain. If you’re favorite bands have already performed for the day or if you’re looking for something to do to pass the time then head to the water park. The park consists of six main water attractions including a lazy river for tubing, a wave pool and numerous water slides. Other attractions include batting cages, beach volleyball, mini-golf, and the ZipRider, which is a cable car that can travel up to 50 mph! There will also be food vendors with options ranging from carnival food to local farmers market grub. The drink menu includes complimentary water stations, soft drinks and a full bar. The Peach Music Festival will also be selling merch all weekend long.
