The Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival will kickoff on September 26th in Franklin, Tennessee. The festival celebrates music, culture and the best food around. This year’s lineup is awesome and the 2-day festival is guaranteed to be a rocking good time.
Kevin Griffin, a musician from Franklin, created the music festival in hopes of creating a meaningful experience through friendship, history and music. The festival is held at The Park at Harlinsdale, an old 230-acre horse farm complete with rolling hills, gorgeous scenery and natural amphitheaters. Griffin knew this would be the ideal spot for a music festival. He hoped to bring people together to enjoy the beauty of Tennessee during the fall and what better way than with a music and cultural festival. Griffin partnered up with his buddies to make his vision a reality and now big name artists headline the Pilgrimage festival every year.
Franklin is a historic town just 20 minutes from Nashville. Downtown Franklin offers hotels, restaurants and shops close to the festival venue for a convenient trip. The festival is made for people of all ages, even children and there are a number of vendors offering food and beverages amidst the event.
All genres are welcomed like rock and roll, jazz, indie, bluegrass and more. The festival also has something they call “Pilgri-mashups,” which is when artists pair up for special collaborations. Young artists have the chance to entertain kids and adults at The Little Pilgrims Stage where young talent can perform.
This year’s lineup includes Willie Nelson, Weezer, Steven Tyler, Band of Horses, Sheryl Crow, Iron & Wine, Neko Case and many more. Tickets start at $92 dollars for one day and go up to $499 dollars for a 2-day VIP experience.
