Susquehanna Breakdown is now bicycle friendly. The only bicycle friendly event on the mountain this year! Bring your bike, explore, enjoy. Plenty of activities are being scheduled throughout the day for our two wheeled friends… a family-friendly ride around the scenic venue grounds, product demos, maintenance clinics and more. Visit our sponsor Cedar Bike & Paddle’s mobile retail store, where you can kick the tires on a new set of wheels, take them out for a spin and even purchase if you are so inclined. Stop by the Biker’s Lounge for a quick drink, fill up your tires and water bottles, lock up your bike or just sit and relax for a bit.


Scheduled to appear at this year’s festival are: Cabinet, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, Marco Benevento, Floodwood featuring Al Schnier & Vinnie Amico of moe., Terrapin Flyer featuring Melvin Seals & Mark Karan, Driftwood, Leroy Justice, And The Moneynotes, Coal Town Rounders, East Bound Jesus, Kalob Griffin Band, The Brummy Brothers, Blind Owl Band, Tom Graham, FMO, and The Schooley Mountain Band.

Continuing in the “named after a Cabinet song” tradition, this year’s festival has been named the SUSQUEHANNA BREAKDOWN MUSIC FESTIVAL. Taking the name from a track on the band’s most recent album, a nearby river, and a noisy, energetic American country dance, 2014’s fest promises to be even bigger and better than the last.


There are many new additions and highlights to the festival this year such as more performing artists, a second stage, more craft and food vendors, family friendly camping (on the pavilion lawn!), and much more. Concertgoers can arrive 5pm on Friday, May 9 to camp on the picturesque Montage Mountain and enjoy an intimate, evening performance on the lawn by Cabinet and a few of their friends!

Celebrated sons of Northeast Pennsylvania, Cabinet has long outgrown the “local band” label while remaining loyal to their regional fans.  The six piece bluegrass / Americana outfit has been busy touring the United States to promote their second studio album, Leap and their most current live release, This Is Cabinet – Set II (both on Ropeadope Records). The Susquehanna Breakdown Music Festival is a highly anticipated homecoming to this local venue.

Tickets are: $20 (GA), $25 (GA day of show), $55 (VIP), $60 (VIP day of show), $20 (Camping), $25 (Camping day of show), $200* (RV Camping), $1000* (RV Camping Rental) *Very limited availability. *Advance sales only. *RV Rentals through Oliver’s Campers Festival Rentals.  Additional fees may apply to tickets.

About Cabinet

Cabinet is a band with roots firmly planted in the Appalachian tradition. They wear their influences like badges, honoring the canon of roots, bluegrass, country, and folk, weaving these sounds into a patchwork Americana quilt. But this music isn’t romanticizing or rehashing the past. Cabinet makes it mark on today. The steady aim of their harmonies soar straight onto target each time, the soaring vocals giving voice to the story of each song. Their music takes the long way home, treating its listeners like passengers on a ride through scenic back roads. Their live shows are inclusive, celebratory, and community building. Everyone will want to get on the wagon with Cabinet. Members Pappy Biondo (banjo, vocals), J.P. Biondo (mandolin, vocals), Mickey Coviello (acoustic guitar, vocals), Dylan Skursky (electric bass, double bass), Todd Kopec (fiddle, vocals), and Jami Novak (drums, percussion), all live and love music, and their polished sound belies their young age.
