Some 20,000 people have volunteered for July’s Democratic National Convention. Their reward, the Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee announced this morning, is free tickets to XPN’s Xponential Music Festival. Ryan Adams, Alabama Shakes and Brandi Carlisle headline the concert, which happens July 22-24 at BB&T Pavilion.

Regular Philadelphians will have an opportunity to win free tickets to the concert. The Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee is holding a contest on Facebook (Philadelphia 2016) and Instagram (@PHLDNC2016). All you have to do is name a song or TV show that takes place around a specific Philly landmark to have a chance of winning.
