Music festival-goers are excitedly preparing for the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, to be hosted in Franklin on Sept. 22 and 23. The festival will bring a glowing lineup of rock, pop, blues, folk, Americana, gospel, country, jazz and more. Pilgrimage is moving into its third year of programming a sensational multi-genre musical atmosphere, featuring some of the greatest headliners seen in Tennessee.
The Pilgrimage Festival makes its home in the Park at Harlinsdale near downtown Franklin. Its six stages will feature an ongoing series of live performances that lasts from morning into the early evening both days. Some of this year’s headliners include Jack White, Lionel Richie, Chris Stapleton, Hozier, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, and Counting Crows. Over 60 well-known artists will be at Pilgrimage. The festival organizers take pride in the festival’s musical diversity. Take this opportunity to discover and experience a variety of new music with friends and family. There’s no better way to experience Pilgrimage.
Since its first year, Pilgrimage has delivered an experience that exceeds expectations even for some of Middle Tennessee’s sometimes picky music fans. The committed group of organizers and affiliates have worked hard to ensure a unique cultural event for people of all ages. Pilgrimage has recently expanded on its kid-friendly area known as the Lil’ Pilgrims stage. Kids can spend time exploring arts and crafts or enjoying small shows at the Mare Barn Theater.
Artisans, craftsmen, shops, fresh food and plenty of things to do between sets at the wealth of sites set up across the festival grounds all add to the Pilgrimage vibe.
Additionally, the Americana Music Triangle Experience returns for 2018. Through this eye-opening experience, Pilgrimage fosters an awareness and admiration for major music landmarks from partnering cities across the Southeast. This aspect of the festival captures and illustrates the pursuit of American musical authenticity.
The Pilgrimage festival organizers look forward to having its growing community of “pilgrims” back for another fantastic year. For the full lineup, tickets, FAQs and more information, visit pilgrimagefestival.com.
