Though the band got its start in the mid-1990s, Tegan & Sara did not enjoy mainstream commercial success until 2004's "So Jealous," which was named as one of Rolling Stone's best albums of the yearTegan and Sara have released 10 studio albums and previously earned a Grammy nomination for the group's visual album, "Get Along," in 2012. The duo will take the stage at Wiggins Park on Saturday, Sept. 23. 

Old Crow Medicine Show, a Nashville-based Americana string band, has been releasing music regularly since 1998. The group was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2013 and picked up Grammy Awards in 2012 and 2015. The band will open the festival with a live performance on Friday, Sept. 22.

This is the 30th year that WXPN has presented its own outdoor music festival. For the first time in 11 years, the festival will not include evening concerts at nearby Freedom Mortgage Pavilion. Instead, the festival will be held entirely at Wiggins Park, the event's home since 2005. 

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Philly-based artist Hannah Westerman designed the festival poster illustrating scenes from the festival over the last three decades. These little easter eggs include the LOVE Park sign, an on-air booth and a promotional car from Subaru, the festival's official sponsor. 

Additional artists will be announced ahead of the festival later this year. For more information and to receive updates about the 30th XPoNential Music Festival, visit WXPN's festival website
