88.5 WXPN presents the 8th Annual Haverford Music Festival (HMF), presented by ACME Markets, on Saturday, September 8th. Featuring live music from 30 national, regional and local performers, this family-oriented event will run from noon to 9:30 p.m. on four stages near the intersection of Eagle and Darby Roads in Havertown. Area businesses and food vendors will fill booths along Darby Road and Hathaway Lane. There will also be two beer gardens, a moon bounce and playground for the kids, and much more fun. Admission is free; voluntary donations will be accepted at the gates. 

The Haverford Music Festival is a family music festival that strengthens the cultural identify of Haverford Township, serves as the primary fundraiser for the Haverford Township Civic Council (HTCC), and provides funding for projects that enhance the quality of life in Haverford Township. 

Headlining the 8th Annual HMF will be singer/songwriter John Paul White, formerly of Grammy Award-winning Americana duo The Civil Wars; Sloan, the acclaimed Canadian power-pop quartet; Lily & Madeleine, harmonizing sisters from Indiana who worked with John Mellencamp on his recent Ghost Brothers of Darkland County album and tour; and the PI Power Trio, featuring Pat Irwin, longtime touring guitarist with the B-52s.

To date, more than $85,000 has been distributed among several worthy community organizations. Last September alone, the 7th Annual Haverford Music Festival raised $12,500.
