First impressions are everything – we all know this. So it goes without saying that Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival is putting it’s best foot forward in its inaugural year and pulling out all the stops. From the lineup to the beautiful festival grounds, there’s plenty of reasons to get excited about this September festival in Franklin, Tennessee.

The Grounds

prilgrimage grounds

Franklin, TN has been repeatedly acknowledged as one of the top most Charming Southern Cities in America and America’s Main Street. The Park at Harlinsdale is truly the crown jewel of Franklin. It’s lush grounds and historical architecture dates back to the first half of the 20th century and you can still see many of those ideals and aesthetics today. We’re excited to experience this festival on such a picturesque landscape, complete with white picket fences surrounding many natural amphitheaters on 200 acres of rolling farm lands, a lake for catch and release fishing, and the horse trails it has become famous for.

The Attractions

This first year festival is not one to be dismissed. With a lineup that includes legends like Wilco, Willie Nelson, Weezer, Sheryl Crown and Iron & Wine as well as buzz bands like Saint Motel, Lucius, The Lone bellow and more, there is truly something for everyone.

Pilgri-Mashups – in case the standalone lineup wasn’t enough, this year will boast Pilgri-mashups that pair artists together for special one-time collaborations on stage.
