Kacey Musgraves, Brothers Osborne to Keep Pilgrimage Music Fest Country
The 2nd Annual Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival happens this weekend, just south of Nashville. Kacey Musgraves and Brothers Osborne will help keep the event country, with both taking the stage on Sunday (Sept. 25).
Pilgrimage Fest is a two-day fest in Franklin, Tenn., that prides itself on being family-friendly and multi-genre. Last year, Willie Nelson played as the sun set on the inaugural fest, and this year, Musgraves, Brothers Osborne and songwriter Lori McKenna ("Girl Crush," "Humble and Kind") will represent the genre. Musgraves has a prime spot late Sunday afternoon on the Fender Gold Record Road stage just before the show closes with Grammy-winning artist Jason Isbell. A little earlier in the day, the Bros will take the George Dickel Kimbro's Harpeth River stage.
Headliners this year include Daryl Hall & John Oates and Beck, but the lineup is stacked with names like Grace Potter, the Violent Femmes, Cake, Better Than Ezra, Margo Price, Anderson East and many more.
The unique festival boasts food trucks, plenty of beverage stops and plenty of merchants, which fans can browse in between sets. Better Than Ezra lead singer and songwriter ("Stuck Like Glue") Kevin Griffin co-founded the festival, which added Justin Timberlake as a producer in 2016.
Two-day passes are sold out, but festival-goers can purchase single day tickets for just $69 on the Pilgrimage Fest website. VIP packages are also available.
