Old Crow Medicine Show will perform on Sept. 22, along with Margo Price, Say She She, Don McCloskey, Nik Greeley & the Operators and others.

Tegan and Sara and The Hold Steady will be among the Sept. 23 attractions, along with Sammy Rae & the Friends, Bailen, Celisse, Julia Pratt, Moustapha Noumbissi and others.

Sept. 24 will feature Hornsby, Low Cut Connie, Allison Russell, Leyla McCalla, Sunny War, Mobbluz, Velvet Rouge and more.

The festival has been presented annually, since 1994, by radio station WXPN (88.5 FM), the non-commercial, member-supported radio station of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

Tickets will go on sale April 21 at 10 p.m., with a pre-sale for WXPN members on April 20. Visit xpnfest.org.
