Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival
Location: Franklin, Tennessee
Dates: September 23rd – 24th
Franklin, Tennessee's Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival started with a bang its first year, booking major acts like Wilco, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Chris Stapleton and Steven Tyler for its inaugural 2015 lineup. Since then, the festival has grown in size and notoriety, with Justin Timberlake joining the festival as a partner last year. Timberlake will make his Pilgrimage stage debut this year, alongside Ryan Adams, the Avett Brothers, Shovels & Rope, Marty Stuart, Nikki Lane, Amanda Shires, Colter Wall and many others. In addition to music, Pilgrimage will feature local food, beer and crafts, many of which are sourced from just up the road in Nashville. B.M.
