If you’re like me, you probably find yourself thinking: man, I don’t get over to Camden nearly as much as I should. Luckily the fine folks at WXPN have come along with their annual pretty awesome reason to venture across the Ben Franklin Bridge: the 8th annual XPoNential Music Festival.
WXPN returns to Wiggins Park in Camden on the mighty Delaware River for that latest incarnation of their annual music festival July 20-22, this year expanding and adding a third day. A full line-up will be announced on May 1st, but yesterday they announced the headliners. Wilco, Philly’s Dr. Dog and the Avett Brothers are all on board for this year’s shindig. There’s a little twist though. That show will actually be at the nearby Susquehanna Bank on Saturday July 21st, but will still be part of the overall festival. In fact, if you buy a 3 day festival pass, it includes lawn seat admission to the Wilco show.
Judging by their upcoming tour schedule, which is pretty laid back- this will be the next time Dr. Dog plays the Philly area after their two sold out shows at the Electric Factory this past weekend.
Reserved tickets for Wilco, the Avett Brothers and Dr. Dog go on sale this Saturday, March 31st. Tickets for the rest of the festival will be available on May 1st, when the rest of the lineup is announced. For more information, go here.
