Pilgrimage Festival is Seeking Local Artist

Pilgrimage Festival

The third annual Play at Pilgrimage is a “locals only” contest. It will give Franklin and Nashville, TN area artists the chance to play on the ASCAP Shady Grove Stage at this year’s Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival and receive other prizes.

Artists interested in playing on the same bill as Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder, Ryan Adams, The Avett Brothers and more now have until 12 p.m.  on August 15th to enter their submissions on Reverb Nation’s website.

Previous winners have included Stevie Woodward, and last year was Anna Graceman.

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event. Have you been putting off purchasing your single day Sunday pass? Don’t wait any longer. There’s only a limited number of tickets left to see Eddie Vedder, Ryan Adams, Amanda Shires, Valerie June, and more at Pilgrimage Fest Day 2.

Pilgrimage Festival takes place on September 23 and 24 in Franklin at Harlinsdale Farm where the music will play all day from 10 a – 8 p on five different stages. Children ten and under are free with the purchase of a one adult general admission pass. Here is what you can experience at Pilgrimage Festival. Purchase your Sunday Day Pass here.
