WXPN Annual Music Festival at Wiggins Park July 19-22

WXPN Annual Music Festival at Wiggins Park July 19-22 Four Days of Great Music On the Camden Waterfront

Philadelphia, PA - WXPN, the nationally-recognized leader in Triple A music and a noncommercial radio service of the University of Pennsylvania, today announced that its annual music festival, now named the XPoNential Music Festival, will return to Camden County's Wiggins Park located on the Camden Waterfront, July 19th to 22nd. The previously three-day event has been expanded to four days. The festival is presented by Subaru.

"XPoNential Music, the name of our online music portal, serves as an umbrella brand for all XPN music offerings," said Roger LaMay, WXPN general manager. "Since the programming of the festival will reflect the wide variety of music we feature – singer-songwriter to alternative - this name change better reflects the diverse talent that will be on display at the festival."

WXPN is returning for a third year to Wiggins Park on the Camden Waterfront which was selected for its spectacular waterfront views, lush open green spaces and an array of local attractions, such as the Camden Children's Garden, which will again serve as the Kids Corner location. WXPN will again offer a variety of family-friendly activities and host an incredible line-up of established as well as up-and-coming musical acts at an affordable ticket price.

WXPN 88.5 FM, the nationally recognized leader in Triple A radio and the premier guide for discovering new and significant artists in rock, blues, roots, and folk, is the non-commercial, member-supported radio service of the University of Pennsylvania. WXPN produces World Cafe®, public radio's most popular program of popular music hosted by David Dye and syndicated by National Public Radio, and the Peabody Award winning Kids Corner hosted by Kathy O'Connell. WXPN also produces Y-Rock On XPN, an online alternative rock music stream. WXPN serves the greater Philadelphia area at 88.5 FM, the Lehigh Valley at 104.9, Worton/Baltimore at 90.5 FM, Harrisburg at 88.1 FM, and the world via online streaming at www.xpn.org and www.XPoNentialMusic.org.
