XPoNential Fest: John Wesley Harding’s Cabin of Wonders (photos, audio, setlist)


On Sunday, a new twist for the XPO Fest included a comedy/musical variety show hosted by John Wesley Harding entitled “John Wesley Harding’s Cabinet of Wonders”. Harding curated, hosted, and performed during the set renouncing stories, live poetry, and sing-a-long’s. For each show, he handpicks different artists to collaborate together to perform weird, out of the ordinary pieces. This performance featured guests, Megan Reilly, Rhett Miller, and others.

    Just wanted to let you know we did not like moving to the Susquehanna Center.  We would rather see less well known groups than to move,and not be able to take our cooler or walk up to the stage.  You took away the beautiful Philadelphia night skyline for poor seating, far from the stage with small video screens you could not see in the daylight.   We have enjoyed Wiggins park these past years and would like to see XPN keep just this venue for the festival.
