So Much Time So Little To Do

WXPN All About the Music Festival – July 21-23 in Philadelphia

The WXPN All About the Music Festival schedule has been announced and tickets are now on sale. This event is being held on three stages in Wiggins Park, Camden NJ (on the waterfront – opposite Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia) and features dozens of national and local artists and bands. This is a wonderful opportunity to take your kids to an outdoor music festival as daily tickets are a mere $13 for adults and $5 for kids 2-12 (under 2 are free). Since WXPN, a commercial free radio station from The University of Pennsylvania, features a nightly (Sun-Thurs) childrens radio call-in program called “Kid’s Corner”, it is only natural that they have a Festival stage dedicated soley to presenting music for our little ones. The Kids Corner stage will feature continious original kids music for children of all ages on both weekend days (no kids stage on Friday night).

The OWTK trio will be enjoying the WXPN All About the Music festivities on Saturday, July 22nd.

Some musical highlights of the weekend are sure to include:

on Saturday
Jim James of My Morning Jacket
Josh Ritter
Willy Mason
Hoots and Hellmouth
The Cats Pajamas

on Sunday
Amos Lee
BC Camplight
The Hiders
Alejandro Escovedo
Brandi Carlile

You are permitted to bring blankets, low-back chairs, coolers, strollers, and cameras into the Festival so make plans to pack up the kids, PB&J sandwiches, juice boxes, a couple rolls of film and spend a July weekend outdoors listening to music.

Never dared to take your kids to such an event? This one is perfect for you as the inexpensive ticket price allows for a low cost, low risk introduction to the summer music festival experience. The WXPN festival grounds are expansive so you and your family will have space to move about. Also, the WXPN crowds tend to be a fairly docile bunch so you will be able to relax and enjoy yourself.

For an extra fun time, park along the Philly waterfront and hop on the Riverlink Ferry for the trip over to New Jersey. Wiggins Park is an easy walk from the dock. Visit the official Festival site for more transportation options.
