WXPN Announces Set Times For 2018 XPoNential Music Festival

(CAMDEN, NJ) -- The set times for artists who will perform at its 2018 XPoNential Music Festival presented by Subaru, taking place July 27, 28 and 29, were announced by member-supported, non-commercial Philadelphia radio station WXPN 88.5 FM. The 25th anniversary edition of the popular, family-friendly XPoNential Music Festival will take place at Wiggins Park and the adjacent BB&T Pavilion, both located on the Delaware Riverfront in Camden, New Jersey.

This year’s festival is the 25th consecutive summer music festival produced and presented by WXPN. The XPoNential Music Festival presented by Subaru is WXPN’s signature annual concert event that draws audiences from throughout the Greater Philadelphia area, Mid-Atlantic region, and Northeastern US. Now in its 14th year at Wiggins Park and 7th year at the adjacent BB&T Pavilion, WXPN produces the XPoNential Music Festival in partnership with the Camden County Board of Freeholders. The festival features the expertly curated mix of established and new artists enjoyed by WXPN members and listeners. The preferred summer music event is known for convenient access via public transportation, natural amphitheaters that produce great sound, plenty of activities for kids, extensive food, drink and vendor selections, and festival seating and riverfront promenades that offer spectacular views of the Delaware River and Philadelphia skyline.

As part of the XPoNential Music Festival, kids can join WXPN’s award-winning Kids Corner program host Kathy O’Connell and her special guests inside the Kids Corner Garden for free face painting, glitter tattoos, and more on Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29 from 11:30 AM to 5 PM. The four-acre garden provides horticultural experiences for creative and imaginative play as well as shade trees, benches and a fun water “sprayground.”  

The 3-Day Go Everywhere Pass provides general access to Wiggins Park and lawn access to BB&T shows, with the option to upgrade to reserved seating at BB&T Pavilion for evening shows there on July 27 and 28. To purchase, visit

As of July 12, tickets are on sale for single-day Wiggins & Garden passes and single-day Go-Everywhere Passes (available for Friday, July 27 & Saturday, July 28, and include lawn admission to BB&T pavilion)
