Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder, The Revivalists and +35 artists at the Pilgrimage Festival

Pilgrimage Music Festival will be returning to The Park at Harlinsdale in Franklin, Tennessee on  September 23 & 24.

After supporting the festival in the past, Justin Timerlake will be joining the lineup of entertainment this year. Overall, I find this to be one of the biggest, best and more breakthrough live sets of 2017.


First, this festival is not a major corporate event. It might have a couple large name sponsors, but overall, the look and feel to the Pilgrimage Music Festival is relative to spending time on Main Street in your hometown. That being said, Timberlake could easily turn Hollywood and produce the next Coachella if he wanted to overall. With him being from Tennessee, the idea of him performing in Tennessee at a grassroots style music festival is one of more intriguing live performances I have heard of recently.

Timberlake has performed with an acoustic guitar in the past, but I find this set more of a crossover to connecting with the acoustic rock/country vibe of the festival. That kind of transcendence in music is exactly what more artists need to try out. It’s a brilliant move on both the festival and Timberlake.

Eddie Vedder and Ryan Adams will be showing their acoustic guitar playing skills, along with vocals in the heart of America during late summer.

Additional acts include: The Avett Brothers, Mavis Staples, Gary Clark Jr., Walk the Moon, Fitz and the Tantrums, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and The Revivalists. Overall +35 artists are currently on the lineup for the two day event.
