Mason Porter and friends will return to the Pocono Mountains on September 16th and 17th for the second annual Midnight Mountain Music Festival. The Philadelphia band started the gathering last summer, drawing locally-based bluegrass, folk, Americana and alt-country acts to the Peaceful Woodlands Family Campground in Blakeslee, PA.

Joining Mason Porter in this week’s initial line-up announcement are Tom Hamilton’s American Babies, Scranton’s Coal Town RoundersNo Good SisterThe Wallace Brothers Band and The Groove Merchants from Kutztown, Ladybird, Valentina & Sunshine Superman, and Chris Grunwald and the Slow Response.

In addition to two days of great music, the organizers have lined-up a chili cook-off and plenty of kids activities and vendors. Tickets and camping passes are available now via the festival website. Check out some of the performing bands below, followed by the event poster.
