The 2015 Pilgrimage Festival has released the first round of bands set to perform at the festival. The Mastermind behind the festival, Kevin Griffin, who is also the lead singer in Better Than Ezra, came up with the idea after jogging through the park at Harlinsdale Farm.
“I had this kind of epiphany surrounded by those rolling hills and natural amphitheaters: This is the perfect setting for an amazing, unique music festival,” Griffin said.
The impressive lineup features artists such as Willie Nelson, The Decemberists and Weezer. Additional bands will be added to the list at a later date. Early-bird tickets are now on sale on the festival’s site.
The Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival is scheduled to take place September 26th and 27th at The Park at Harlinsdale in Franklin, Tennessee.
The first wave of bands to perform announced are:
Iron & Wine
St. Paul & The Broken Bones
The Lone Bellow
Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires
Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear
John & Jacob
Big Sam’s Funky Nation
