Pilgrimage Music Festival was cut short this year due to inclement weather. On Saturday, the event was evacuated at 4:30 p. Then on Sunday, the second day of the event was completely canceled.

Monday, Pilgrimage organizers announced refunds to ticket holders and on Thursday those refund amounts were updated. On Facebook, Pilgrimage shared the following message.

As promised, we have been working hard on refunds for our ticket holders. All refunds will be processed to the original credit card holder based on the original purchase price through Frontgate in the next three weeks:

75% of 2-day pass types
75% of parking pass
50% refund of Saturday single day pass
100% refund of Sunday single day pass

A previous communication by the festival stated that a two day pass would only receive a 50% refund and Saturday single day pass refunds were yet to be determined.

In regarding the cancellation, Pilgrimage stated, “While the cancellations of Pilgrimage’s Saturday afternoon and Sunday programming due to inclement and dangerous weather including overall site safety conditions is disappointing for everyone, we fully support the decision made by Chief Todd Horton and the City of Franklin. The safety of our patrons, guests, artists, and staff is the first priority. The lighting strikes on Saturday afternoon forced an evacuation and along with the persistent rainfall has left the site unsafe and unavailable to use. We remain committed to working with Chief Horton and the city as partners now and in the future.”

2018 is the fourth year for the Pilgrimage Music Festival at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin where headliners Jack White, Lionel Richie, Chris Stapleton, and Dave Matthews were scheduled to perform.
