Now in its 12th year at Wiggins Park on the Camden waterfront, the Xponential Music Festival has again expanded its festival grounds to include BB&T Pavilion. The annual three-day, two-venue festival will be held July 22 to 24, with another noteworthy lineup just announced.
With the purchase of a 3-Day Go Everywhere Pass, festival goers will have access to all three concerts held at the BB&T Pavilion, in addition to all three days at Wiggins Park. The first night will host Ryan Adams and Kurt Vile and Violators. Night two will include recent Grammy-nominated Alabama Shakes and Gary Clark Jr., with special guest Chicano Batman. The final night includes a special performance by Brandi Carlile and Old Crow Medicine Show, with special guest case/lang/veirs.
Two stages at Wiggins Park will host dozens of bands and solo artists, including Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the Felice Brothers, Father John Misty (solo), Femi Kuti & the Positive Force, the Districts, The Record Company, David Wax Museum, the Suffers, Darlingside and Low Cut Connie. Keeping true to tradition, many artists are featured regularly on WXPN and can attribute a measurable amount of popularity to being on their airwaves.
The festival is easily accessed by public transportation, with a number of activities for kids and families and an extensive selection of food, drinks and vendors. Resting on a natural amphitheater with pristine acoustics, Wiggins Park has a beautiful view of the Delaware River and accompanying Philadelphia skyline.
Reserved and lawn seating are now available through Ticketmaster.com, the BB&T Pavilion box office or by calling 800-745-3000. In addition to the reserved seat and lawn tickets, weekend passes for Wiggins Park-only concerts will be offered. Upgrade options will be available for a limited time, including a new option to upgrade to reserved seating for each night at BB&T Pavilion.
