The Trey Anastasio Band, String Cheese Incident, and Phil Lesh and Friends, featuring Warren Haynes, John Scofield and John Molo, are among the headliners at the 2019 Peach Music Festival. Set for July 25th through 28th, the event, originally launched by the Allman Brothers Band in 2012, returns to Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The 2019 lineup includes a number of Peach veterans: Moe., Greensky Bluegrass, Blues Traveler, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band and Lettuce are all on the bill. But this summer’s roster is also noteworthy for the wide net cast over young acts and artists previously working outside of the jam genre. Country-soul singer Maggie Rose will make her Peach Fest debut, while bluegrass phenom Billy Strings, Southern rock band Bishop Gunn and folk-rock outfit Michigan Rattlers are also set to perform.
Other acts include the Infamous Stringdusters, Younder Mountain String Band, the Allman Betts Band and the Marcus King Band, who delivered a thrilling performance at least year’s Peach. “A lot of people out there are bridging that gap between country music and rock & roll music,” King told Rolling Stone earlier this year. “We’re trying to do the same thing, not be confined to one particular genre, but explore all of our roots: gospel, blues, rock, country, folk music. The jam community gives a home to all of these artists.”
Four-day general-admission passes, at a special early bird price, are on sale now.
