Featuring WXPN’s expertly curated mix of established and new artists, the family-friendly festival offers convenient access via public transportation, natural amphitheaters that produce great sound, extensive food, drink, and vendor selections, and festival seating and riverfront promenades that offer spectacular views of the Delaware River and Philadelphia skyline. WXPN produces the festival in partnership with the Camden County Board of Commissioners.
