The Allman Brothers Band will be headlining the Peach Stage on Friday and Saturday nights, preceded by Bob Weir & RatDog. On Sunday, the Peach Stage kicks off with a stripped down set - Brunch with Bobby - a solo acoustic performance by Bob Weir. Closing out The Peach on Sunday is The Black Crowes.

In addition to ABB, fans will get a taste of Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band, Railroad Earth, Galactic, Rusted Root, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and more bands that will be announced in the coming weeks.

"The first Peach Festival was as great of a success as we could have asked for," said The Allman Brothers Band. "The overwhelming response from both the audience and artists to continue has exceeded our expectations. We are very excited that Bob Weir & RatDog have decided to join us this year in Scranton along with many other talented musicians. Year two will be even better than the inaugural Peach Music Festival, we cannot wait to play Scranton again."

Iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award-winning band, the Allman Brothers Band just celebrated "The Year of the Peach" in 2012, marking their 43rd anniversary as a group. The group will begin their annual New York City Beacon Theatre residency March 1 with 11 sold-out shows running through March 17th.
