XPoNential Gets a Mac Attack

XPoNential Gets a Mac Attack

 

The legendary New Orleans rock, blues and voodoo music man Dr. John – aka Mac Rebennack – has just been added to the lineup for the three day XPoNential Music Festival coming to the Camden waterfront Friday , July 26 through Sunday, July 28. Almost as eXotic Australian exports John Butler Trio and haunting neo-Southern California folk rockers Dawes are  also newly tacked to the bill, organized and produced by non-commercial adult alternative music station WXPN.

Like last year, the relatively bargain priced music orgy  features one big show in the Susquehanna Bank Center -  a Saturday night bill of The Lumineers (recent Grammy nominees), Philly’s own Dr. Dog, Polica and Wake Owl. Then the show moves outdoors to nearby Wiggins Park, where attractions this year will also include the groovin' easy  British soul pop crooner Michael Kiwanuka,  second gen twangster  Justin Townes Earle, local rockers DRGN King,  and new faces going places like Lord Huron, Phosphorescent, and Trampled by Turtles.

Starting today, new and renewing WXPN members who pledge $24 a month will receive two 3-day festival passes that includes lawn admission to the SBC show and special refreshment tent admissions/meet&greets  at Wiggins Park.  Tickets for all go on sale May 1.
