Waterfront Music Pavilion
Experience three amazing days of great music and all-ages fun at the annual XPoNential Music Festival on the Camden Riverfront.
Produced by Philadelphia’s public radio station WXPN, the musical extravaganza — held just on the other side of the Delaware River in New Jersey — features performances by dozens of local and national artists on three different stages.
The festival goes down at Waterfront Music Pavilion and Wiggins Park, venues that offer spectacular waterfront views, lush open green spaces and proximity to an array of local attractions, such as Adventure Aquarium and the Camden Children’s Garden.
This year’s festival is scheduled for September 16-18, 2022.

The XPoNential Music Festival lineup features dozens of indie up-and-comers as well as established bands and musicians heard on WXPN 88.5FM, the award-winning Philadelphia public radio station.
In addition to multiple stages of musical acts, the festival includes family-oriented activities throughout the area around Wiggins Park, and various food and craft vendors.
The RiverLink Ferry leaves from Penn’s Landing and brings visitors directly to Wiggins Park.
Guests can also take the PATCO High Speed Line to City Hall Station.
Snagging tickets to the fest is a cinch. A 3-Day Go Everywhere Pass costs $85 and gets guests access to all the stages, both venues and the Camden Children’s Garden — which is open Saturday and Sunday only.
Single day passes at Waterfront Music Pavilion cost $70. At Wiggins Park, a Friday single-day pass costs $50, and the price increases to $65 for Saturday and Sunday.
Festival reentry is allowed at Wiggins Park only. Tickets are available on the festival’s website.
