One Saturday night a couple of years back in Camden, there was a culture clash when the XPN Xponential Festival in Wiggins Park banged up against a Toby Keith concert next door at the amphitheatre formerly known as the Tweeter Center, and a cowboy booted and Birkenstocked crowd had to fight to the death over a limited number of parking spaces.
There's no chance of that happening this year, because the Xponential fest is expandng on Saturday night July 21 to take over the Susquehanna Bank Center, as it is now named, with a triple bill of Wilco, the Avett Brothers (that's them) and Philadelphia's own Dr. Dog, who just got through headlining two nights at the Electric Factory.
How's the ticketing going to work? It's tricky. Reserved seats - that means the 7000 or so under the roof - will go on sale for Wilco/Avetts/Dr. Dog this Saturday at 10 a.m. on Live Nation.com. Three day passes to the Fest - which go on sale on May 1, the day the rest of the lineup will be announced - will include general admission to the Susq Center's lawn, which is big enough to hold 18,000 fannies.
