Scranton, home of the fictional Dundler-Mifflin Paper Company, is now home to the very real Peach Music Festival happening August 10-12, 2012. The Allman Brothers teamed up with Live Nation to produce a lineup that includes a solid list of jam bands including Zac Brown Band, Warren Haynes, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Railroad Earth, O.A.R., Blackberry Smoke, Jiomoe’s Jazzez Band, Dark Star Orchestra, The Wailers, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, and The Blind Boys of Alabama. The Allman Brothers¬†will play two nights of the festival.

Now we know what some of you are thinking. Scranton? Isn’t that some sort of post-industrial coal mining town? What you don’t know is that this area of Pennsylvania is rolling hills and mellow countryside. The venue is at Montage Mountain, a local ski hill that boasts chill camping. One thing to remember — it won’t be car camping so pack light, friends.

Oh, and one other important item besides the music. There’s a frippin’ water park on site that’s free with admission.

Tickets: Tickets are on sale now for The Peach Music Festival. There’s various pricing levels depending on the how long you wait. This will vary from $120-$165 and it’s Live Nation so expect service fees of at least 20-25% on top of that. Camping is an additional $35.
