Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival is a two-day event transforming The Park At Harlinsdale Farm into an oasis of music, food, and culture set against the natural amphitheaters and vistas of this former walking horse farm located in Franklin, TN. Renowned musical acts, many performing acoustically, will be presented on wood-clad stages reflecting the area's historic aesthetic. In addition to artists performing their own sets, Pilgrimage will feature Pilgri-mashups where one-of-a-kind pairings of musicians collaborate with one another on stage and Little Pilgrim's Stage specifically for kids. The region's best food and drink will be on display as well as numerous local artists and artisans creating an all-encompassing festival experience.
"We can't wait to be back in September with another great lineup with even more artists still to be announced," says co-producer and Franklin resident Kevin Griffin. "We have also announced the first round of sponsors, restaurants, food trucks and festival vendors that includes great partners like The Frye Company Harpeth River Stage."

The festival debuted last year with a star studded lineup featuring artists such as Willie Nelson, Wilco, Weezer, Sheryl Crow, Cage the Elephant, Band of Horses, Steven Tyler and more with 10,000 fans descending upon the Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin each day.
