Experience three incredible days of great music and all-ages fun at the annual XPoNential Music Festival on the Camden Riverfront .

Produced by Philadelphia’s beloved public radio station WXPN, the musical extravaganza — held just across the Delaware River in New Jersey — features performances by dozens of local and national artists on three different stages.

The festival goes down at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion and Wiggins Park, venues that offer spectacular waterfront views and lush open green spaces.

This year’s festival runs from September 16-18, 2022 .
