The Peach Music Festival dropped its lineup Friday with Oysterhead — a trio featuring Phish’s Trey Anastasio, Les Claypool from Primus and Stuart Copeland from The Police — as the headliner.
The jam band festival held at Montage Mountain, which was moved this year to Fourth of July weekend, welcomes back some familiar faces as well, with moe, the String Cheese Incident and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead.
Also on the bill is funk outfit Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, longtime supporters of the festival, along with Twiddle, Umphrey’s McGee, Tower of Power, Oteil & Friends and Billy Strings.
One notable absence is Gov’t Mule frontman Warren Haynes, a staple at Peach.
Oysterhead was initially formed around 2000 and had a short run before reforming in 2006, again for another short run. Earlier this year, the band announced it was going to play two dates in Colorado in February, fueling speculation that they could appear at Peach.
