The 2023 XPoNential Music Festival marks the 30th consecutive year that WXPN, the non-commercial, member-supported radio station of the University of Pennsylvania, has produced a multi-day, outdoor music festival. It began in 1994 as the two-day WXPN Singer-Songwriter Weekend, located at Penn’s Landing on the Philadelphia side of the Delaware Riverfront. In 2005, the festival relocated to Wiggins Park in Camden, NJ, and Subaru became the presenting sponsor. The festival was renamed the XPoNential Music Festival in 2007.
Produced in partnership with the Camden County Board of Commissioners and featuring WXPN’s expertly curated mix of established, new and local artists, the festival draws audiences from throughout the Greater Philadelphia area, Mid-Atlantic region, and Northeastern US. Its Wiggins Park location offers convenient access via public transportation, two waterfront stages in natural amphitheaters that produce great sound, lawn seating, and riverfront promenades that offer spectacular views of the Delaware River and Philadelphia skyline. Festival amenities include an artist meet-and-greet area for WXPN members, a children’s activities area, and extensive food, beverage and other vendor selections.
