I live in NYC and try to make the trek down to Wanee as often as I can, because it is the best damned music fest in the land - such a great vibe, great music, wonderful place. I couldn't make the Peach Music Festival last year, but want to this year. I am wondering what everyone's experience was last year - what was the vibe like, how was the camping? Anyone go to both that can compare? I am missing Wanee and hoping Peach Music Fest will keep me satisfied until next April!

Last year's Peach was, for a first year festival, pretty good. However, there were some problems; we had to be searched and all beer had to be discarded walking up this steep hill from the main stage to the side stage. This was INCREDIBLY time consuming and annoying. Also, the mixture of festival-like lawn seating and regular seats made for an awkward two days, as we couldn't just rush the front of the stage to get a good spot for the night. The security could get distracting, but they weren't too bad. Last years lineup was a little weak (There were oceans of empty seats most of the day until derek, warren, zac brown, and the abb went on), but this years lineup is a lot better. All in all, Peach Fest was (and will be) and enjoyable experience.

Thanks and good to hear!

Wanee is hands down the winner, primarily because of the location-Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park is the greatest festival site. IMO and many others.
I'd like to take a moment to thank The Allman Brothers Band for having two great festivals on the East coast, I've been to three Wanees but April is always a problem, too many things happening with the Family.
so last year I made the 10 hour trek from Charlotte to Scranton (solo), I had a great time but and this is a BIG but the camping kinda sucked, bring a wagon to assist getting your gear up the ski slopes. This year I got a room at the comfort inn, we may put up a tent just for somewhere to crash in the afternoon.

I can't compare the two having never been to Wanee, but I went to the Peach and enjoyed myself. The initial climb up the mountain with camping gear was a bit of a bear and something I didn't expect. Once we got setup though we had a good time and the vibe in the camping area was fun. I liked the venues for the two stages and I really didn't mind the walk between the two. There is definitely room for improvement and it seems like the organizers have been receptive to suggestions and are trying to improve upon the event. I'm looking forward to the event again this year and camping up on the mountain.

i have done Wanee & also PeachFest ~ they are both great festivals & offer us the bands we love & have passion for ~ also a great event to gather with our friends & famABBily
if i had to pick between the 2 though, Wanee would be my shoice ~ the venue layout itslef is much more user friendly! and then there is Helen's Hilton ~ there is a spirit of fellowship at that corner of the campground, that is beyond mere words to describe!
i just did Wanee again & I'm in for PeachFest as well...Mountain Jam too! take them all in while we have the opportunities!

We are also doing Mountain Jam for the first time this year. Looking forward to both.

Speaking of Peach Fest! Does anyone have an idea as to what Phase Two is going to be?
