The summer is coming to an end, and we’re loving the feeling of fall creeping in. While summer is packed with music festivals all around the country, we’ve been counting down to one of our favorite festivals right here in the Nashville area. The Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival is coming up on it’s second year in town, and we couldn’t be more excited. While you can find incredible music and talent around Nashville any night of the week, Pilgrimage Fest is a special experience bringing together local and out of town talent all in one weekend.
The festival takes place at the Harlinsdale farm in Franklin, which is a truly stunning backdrop for two days chock full of your favorite (or soon to be favorite) musical acts. Watching the sunset over the farm while listening to The Decemberists play a killer set last year was a memory we won’t forget! This year, the festival brings you Beck, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Grace Potter, Jason Isbell, and many many more. Buy a weekend ticket for the full festival experience, or grab yourself a single day pass (only $69!) to catch your favorite artist.
The open farm space means the festival is not too crowded, so it’s easy to navigate between the four stages, kid-friendly areas, food and drinks, and merchandise. Come hungry, because you’ll find Nashville’s favorite food trucks and restaurants ready to serve you! You’ll find us in line for The Grilled Cheeserie and Retro Sno. Bonus: the drink lines moved quickly last year, so you won’t spend precious listening time waiting for a refill! On the market side, there are booths from DCXV, Project 615, and many others.
Bring a chair or blanket to set up a spot for the day, and bring a jacket for any weather (you never know in Tennessee!). And most importantly, prepare yourself for a full day of great music!
