Longing for summer? A portion of the lineup for July's XPoNential Music Festival was announced Tuesday, and it should give fans a little something to look forward to.

Wilco, Conor Oberst and Philly's own Hop Along will headline the first night of the festival, 88.5 WXPN announced Tuesday. The concert will take place from July 28 until July 30 at BB&T Pavilion's Wiggins Waterfront Park in Camden.

Wilco performed at the festival in 2012 and 2013, and Hop Along took the stage in 2015. Though, it'll be the first time at XPoNential for Conor Oberst – the man behind the band Bright Eyes.

Tickets for the July 28 show will go on sale Friday at noon, according to a news release. 

The station will unveil the rest of the festival's lineup in the coming weeks when three-day passes go on sale.
