New artists announced for XPoNential Music Festival
Camden’s festival with the silly capitalization will retain much of its complicated structure.
Good thing the new names scheduled to play the XPoNential Music Festival are easy on the ears.
Dr. John, Dawes, John Butler Trio and many more artists will join previously announced artists The Lumineers and Dr. Dog for the three-day festival, performed at Wiggins Park and Susquehanna Bank Center from July 26 to July 28.
Sandwiched between the outdoor tunes along the Camden Waterfront, The Lumineers, Polica, Wake Owl and last year’s co-headliner Dr. Dog will perform the evening of Saturday, July 27, at Susquehanna Bank Center.
Days after Jay-Z announced the return of Made in America Festival, headlined by Beyonce and Nine Inch Nails, WXPN GeneralManager Roger LaMay made a bold proclamation.
“With the XPoNential Festival’s legacy and popularity, and our stellar lineup of artists, this is the Philadelphia-area concert event of the summer,” LaMay said in a statement.
Additional artists scheduled to perform at Wiggins Park, located between Adventure Aquarium and the Battleship, include Trampled By Turtles, Michael Kiwanuka, Brett Dennen, Lianne La Havas, Justin Townes Earle, José James, The Last Bison, Kopecky Family Band, Lord Huron, Phosphorescent, Fleeting Ends, DRGN KING, The Stray Birds, The Districts, Aaron & The Spell and Alo Brasil.
Tickets will be open to the general public on May 1. Prices have not been released.
