Pilgrimage Music Festival returns with quiet, laidback start

4 min read

FRANKLIN, Tenn. — Thousands of people attended the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival Saturday under clear blue skies, setting the stage for a weekend of live music. 

The annual festival was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic and reopened this year at full capacity with negative coronavirus test or full vaccination requirements. Pilgrimage emerged as the last outdoor festival left standing in Middle Tennessee after severe weather washed out Bonnaroo.

General Admission tickets sold out by Friday, putting the festival on track to reach its maximum number of 25,000 guests daily. The festival’s media relations team didn’t immediately provide exact attendance counts, but despite the ticket sell-out, the crowd was a slow trickle of people early Saturday when the gates opened.
