"The first Peach Festival was as great of a success as we could have asked for," The Allman Brothers Band stated in a press release. "The overwhelming response from both the audience and artists to continue has exceeded our expectations. Year two will be even better than the inaugural Peach Music Festival, we cannot wait to play Scranton again."

Last year, more than 30,000 fans attended the summer festival, the name for which was inspired by Allman Brothers Band's 1972 release, "Eat a Peach."
