The XPoNential Music Festival, taking place Sept. 17-19 at Camden’s Wiggins Park and the nearby BB&T Pavilion, has announced its set times, with 25 pop, rock, folk, blues and world music artists — including Tedeschi Trucks, Dawes, Los Lobos, Ani DiFranco, Shovels & Rope and Nicole Atkins — performing on three stages.
This will be the first “normal” XPoNential festival since 2019, since the 2020 version had to move online because of the pandemic. It will also be taking place later in the year than usual (it’s usually scheduled for July).
Proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test is required of all attendees.
Philadelphia public radio station WXPN (88.5 FM) sponsors the festival, which is Southern New Jersey’s biggest rock event, every year.
The Camden Children’s Garden, which is located near Wiggins Park and features a variety of children’s activities and educational exhibits, will also be open for festival attendees on Sept. 18 and 19.
