The lineup for the fourth annual edition of the fest has been announced, and it features quite a few familiar faces and some other big names. Headlining the four-day event will be Allman Brothers frontman Gregg Allman, as well as Santana, Willie Nelson and founding Grateful Dead singer/guitarist Bob Weir, who will play with Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann‘s new group, Billy & the Kids.

Most of the other members of The Allman Brothers Band also will be performing with various musical projects at The Peach Music Festival, which will take place August 13-16 at its usual site — Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Guitarist/singer Warren Haynes will play with Railroad Earth and drummer Butch Trucks will hit the stage with some “very special friends,” while the bill also includes drummer Jaimoe‘s group Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band and the duo Oteil and Roosevelt featuring bassist Oteil Burbridge.

Other acts set to play the festival include Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, Old Crow Medicine Show, G. Love & Special Sauce, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Dark Star Orchestra, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Rusted Root and Dumpstaphunk, among others. In addition, special “Sunday Sessions” performances will be held on the final day of the festival that will see Weir joining Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and will also feature a set by Keller Williams’ Grateful Gospel.

In addition to the various music acts performing on multiple stages, the festival includes access to a water park, camping and more. Tickets are available now at
