9/23-24: Pilgrimage Fest

The third-annual Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival is this weekend in Franklin, and it’s the biggest edition of the fest yet. A certain new-ish resident of Franklin is headlining (cough Justin Timberlake cough), plus Ryan Adams, Eddie Vedder, and the Avett Brothers. There’s also a ton of great local talent like past NATIVE cover stories Amanda Shires, Langhorne Slim, The Shadowboxers, and Nikki Lane; and past features Sinclair and Blackfoot Gypsies. No wonder the festival is expecting 25,000 people a day this year (that’s double last year’s attendance). Find tickets here—we hope you’ll make the Pilgrimage with us!
