The Peach Music Festival is a music festival started by The Allman Brothers Band and Live Nation Entertainment that has been held annually since 2012 at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain and Montage Mountain Ski Resort in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Billed as the first ever Allman Brothers inspired music festival in northeastern Pennsylvania, it has been held each year since 2012 and attracts thousands of people. Festivalgoers are encouraged to shop at the many food and craft vendors on the grounds of the festival and are offered free access to the Montage Mountain Ski Resort, which is transformed into a large water park in the summer months, giving them the opportunity to utilize the park's many water rides and attractions while listening to the musicians performing. Camping and RV Parking is also offered on the grounds. The festival takes place in mid-August over the course of several days, and has different performers, headliners and special events each day.[1]

In a statement released earlier this year, Greg Allman stated that The Allman Brothers Band will stop touring at the end of 2014. Allman states "This is it—this is the end of it." He goes on to say, "45 years is enough and I want to do something else, anyway. Everyone has their own real good respective bands." However, he leaves the door open to possible reunions down the road. "Who's to say? We may get together every five years and just do one play at a time." [2] No mention has been made of the fate of any future iterations of the festival beyond 2014.
