Pilgrimage Launches New App, Full Festival Lineup

Pilgrimage Festival

Only three weeks before its sophomore weekend, the Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival has released a complete schedule and launched a new app.

The festival boasts a lineup with heavy hitters such as Beck, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Jason Isbel, Kacey Musgraves, Violent Femmes and Grace Potter.

The new festival app will allow festival goers to keep up with the latest info on all their favorite artists, set times, customized schedule and of course time sensitive notifications. It also includes indie favorites including Kaleo, The Strumbellas and Shakey Graves.

Artists will perform on five stages including The FRYE Company Midnight Sun, Fender Gold Record Road, George Dickel Kimbro’s Harpeth River, ASCAP/City Winery Shady Grove and Little Pilgrims Family Stage.


The family friendly festival recently announced the lineup for the Lil’ Pilgrim’s Family Stage. It will feature performances by Ralph’s World, Jazzy Ash & The Leaping Lizards, The Happy Racer, Mr. Steve, Casey Campbell and a special performance by Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers aboard the Pilgrimage Pirate Ship.

The family area also will have interactive activities throughout the day including a Magic Show by Michael Dardent. Kids under 10 get in free when accompanied by an adult general admission ticket.

Between shows, festival goers can also experience more than 30 artisan booths in the bazaar, 24 local and regional food booths including award winning food trucks, and beverage stands.

The Art Barn will feature curated works from local and regional artists. Those who need to keep with college football and the NFL will also have a place to watch their favorite games in the Beer Hall with craft beer selections.

To top it off, the festival is looking forward to Justin Timberlake partnering and producer of the festival.

“I couldn’t be more excited about becoming part of The Pilgrimage Music & Culture Festival,” Timberlake said. “Being a Tennessee native and now a member of the community in Franklin, I have been watching the development of the festival over the past two years. For me, this is an amazing opportunity to help build an exceptional event and contribute to my community.”
