Our town offers plenty of weekend fun, but sometimes the lure of Philadelphia beckons—and our new Summer in the City feature can help guide you to the fun.
If you feel like venturing out a little farther from home, check here for a weekly suggestion of something fun or interesting to do in the City of Brotherly Love. Whether it's restaurant to try, a festival to attend or special museum exhibits, we'll feature something different every Thursday.
It's almost your last chance to snag early bird tickets for WXPN's three-day music festival taking place on Friday, July 22 through Sunday, July 24. Yes, the show is a little farther than Philly—across the Delaware River in Camden, N.J.—but the line-up and price is worth the travel.
Over the three days, 31 bands will perform on two stages. Citizen Cope, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Joseph Arthur, Jukebox the Ghost and Carbon Leaf are among the long list of acts. View the lineup by day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) to see all of the bands.
Buy your tickets by Friday, July 15 and pay $50 for a three-day festival pass or $25 for a day pass (general admission). XPN members get even more discounts. Regular pricing for the show starts July 16.
In addition to enjoying great music for a fair price, XPN doesn't want to break your bank on food. Guests can bring food and water (but coolers are subject to search) or choose from a selection of vendors. Find out what other items you can bring along.
