Peach At The Beach spawned from the annual Peach Music Festival in Scranton, PA. The Allman Brothers Band started the festival in 2012. Each Summer, the festival has brought jam bands from around the world to the Montage Mountain Resort for concert-goers to enjoy. Since its beginning, artists such as Santana, the Black Crowes, and Ween have played the festival. This year marks a shift in venue, with the festival relocating to Atlantic City’s Island Waterpark for the Summer. The festival will feature shows for all ticket-holders on the main Peach Stage. Additionally, General Admission+, VIP and Super VIP ticket holders can access early waterpark DJ and artist sets.

The festival will kick off for premium ticket-holders at 11:00am with special waterpark DJ sets. The waterpark concerts will feature sets by DJ King Mega, DJ Logic, and Uncle Jesse. The waterpark set will also include a show by Asbury Park’s Dogs In a Pile. Jersey native guitarist Jimmy Law and drummer Joe Babick founded the band in 2019 with help from a host of Berklee-trained musicians. They combine jazz, rock, and funk to create psychedelic journeys for their audiences.

Doors open for the festival’s Peach Stage at 2:00pm. The Peach Stage is located outside the waterpark, and will host 5 performances throughout the afternoon and evening.

Mykal Rose, from legendary reggae band Black Uhuru, and a staple of the genre since the early 1970s will kick off the festival with a 3:00pm set. In 1984, Rose and Black Uhuru won the first Grammy for Best Reggae Album for their record Anthem. Since the 1990s, Rose has toured the world, spreading his iconic roots reggae stylings.

Rose’s set will be followed by a performance by Karina Rykman. Rykman’s journey into indie and jam rock stardom began in her youth in New York City. By the time of her graduation from NYU, Rykman was playing alongside Vulfpeck, Les Claypool, and Sean Ono Lennon. Rykman is known for her combination of indie pop with scorching distorted rock. Since beginning her career, Rykman has headlined festivals like Bonnarroo, and played on shows like Late Night with Seth Meyers. This performance comes after the release of Rykman’s 2023 album Joyride produced by Phish’s Trey Anastasio. She will perform a 4:00pm set.

The highlight of the Festival is a performance by Trouble No More recreating the Allman Brothers’ iconic 1972 album Eat a Peach. The band includes all-star musicians who are dedicated to recreating the Allman Brothers’ early catalog. Their guitarist Brandon Niederauer has shared the stage with everyone from Buddy Guy to Lady Gaga. The band additionally features vocalist Lamar Williams Jr., son of the Allman Brothers band’s bassist, and 5x Grammy-nominated keyboardist Peter Levin. During their recreation of Eat a Peach, the band will play Allman Brothers hits, including “Melissa,” and “Blue Sky.” The band will begin their set at 5:30pm.

Trouble No More will be followed by a second 7:15pm set by Dogs In a Pile. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will then close out the festival with 2 sets beginning at 9:00pm. Joe Russo formed Almost Dead in Brooklyn in 2013 to perform classic tracks from the Grateful Dead. Since their start, the band has played with legends like John Mayer, Ween, and Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh. Almost Dead has previously sold out shows at venues including Red Rocks, the Brooklyn Bowl, and the Peach Music Festival. Rolling Stone even named their 2018 Peach Music Festival performance as “Best Scene-Stealer,” saying Almost Dead takes “improvisational jam rock to the nth degree.”

Festivities are not limited to July 13th, with special pre and post festival parties. On July 12th, Philadelphia-based jam band the Disco Biscuits will perform at the Showboat Resort’s Bourbon Ballroom. Saturday, July 13th will also feature a special “Peach After Dark” set at the Bourbon Ballroom. This set will include Woodstock-based experimental rocker Marco Benevento, and South Carolina-based synth wave band Doom Flamingo.
