The full lineup for this summer's WXPN Xponential Music festival, which is happening in Camden's Wiggins Park and also next door at the Susquehanna Bank Center from July 20-22, has been announced.

We already knew that Wilco, Avett Brothers and Dr. Dog were headlining Saturday at the Susq. We now carry on with the less exciting knowledge that Counting Crows with play that big room on Sunday the 22nd. And also that, over the course of three days the Wiggins Park portion of the fest will include The Hold Steady, Kathleen Edwards, Diego Garcia, John Wesley Harding's multi-act Cabinet of Wonders, Ozomatli, Lee Ranaldo Band, Patterson Hood from the Drive-By Truckers and JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound. Not to mention a formidable troika of local acts whose names might confuse you: The War On Drugs, Work Drugs and Good Old War. 

Tickets for the Counting Crowes go on sale May 4. Because its taking place at two venues, ticketing is somewhat complicated. More information on logistics here.

That's a picture of Canadian singer-songwriter Edwards, and below is an In The Mix Live video of The War On Drugs doing "Best Night."
