The Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival will return to historic Franklin, TN (just outside of Nashville) on September 25 and 26. As the festival preparations get underway, the star-studded lineup of artists has been revealed. Topping the bill will be Maren Morris, The Black Keys, Dave Matthews Band and Cage the Elephant.
Additional performers on the lineup include Khruangbin, Black Pumas, Amos Lee, Tanya Tucker, Better Than Ezra, Houndmouth, Tank and the Bangas, Valerie June, JD McPherson, Jamestown Revival, Low Cut Connie, Robert Finley, Katie Pruitt, Morgan Wade, Larry Fleet, Harlem Gospel Travelers, Hailey Whitters, Dylan LeBlanc, Anna Vaus, Blessing Offor, Natalie Madigan, and many more.
The festival celebrates its seventh year at The Park at Harlinsdale Farm and will feature more than 50+ acts across five stages. The festival will continue to support local artisans and makers with approximately 70 booths in VIP Village, which will feature handcrafted goods, wares and wearables for purchase. 30 local restaurants will also serve their most popular dishes and nearly 20 of the area’s best food trucks will also park along the festival grounds.
“Tennessee thrives on live music and we’ve been in a musical drought for the past year,” Kevin Griffin, one of the festival’s co-founders and Better Than Ezra member, shared with Billboard. “Pilgrimage is a one-of-a-kind festival experience, showcasing the best music, food, libations, and crafts the region has to offer. We can’t wait to deliver one of the most exciting and diverse lineups of our seven-year history this September. Let’s bring the music back to Franklin.”
Two-day general admission tickets and VIP passes will go on sale beginning Thursday, April 29 at 10 a.m. CT at pilgrimatefestival.com. Layaway options and payment plans for tickets are also available.
