Trey Anastasio Band, The Black Crowes and Billy Strings top the lineup for Peach’s 2022 event.
Live Nation will present Peach, which will conclude July 3 with an Independence Day weekend fireworks display.
Multiple artists on the bill appeared on Pollstar‘s cover in 2021, including Anastasio, Goose, The Black Crowes and Strings, the latter of whom won Best New Headliner/Artist Development Story at the Pollstar Awards earlier this week. 11E1even, the management firm representing Goose, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and other Peach bookings including Eric Krasno & The Assembly, Kitchen Dwellers, Holly Bowling and JRAD’s Tom Hamilton (who will appear together as Lacuna) and Ripe, was also featured on Pollstar‘s cover in June 2020.
Since its 2012 inception, Peach has been a key event for the jam world. In fact, Goose and its team point to it as a key inflection point in the band’s career.
“That set just blew us away,” the band’s agent Karl Morse of Arrival told Pollstar in August. “Instantly we were like, ‘This is amazing. These guys have what it takes to go all the way.'”
After its 2020 event was called off due to the pandemic, Peach Fest returned in 2021 with a bill topped by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, the reunited Oysterhead (Anastasio’s supergroup with Primus’ Les Claypool and The Police’s Stewart Copeland) and The String Cheese Incident.
In 2018, the most recent year for which Pollstar has Peach data, the event grossed $2.1 million with a lineup led by Twiddle, Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band, Dark Side of the Mule and Gov’t Mule.
