The festival will also include the “Americana Music Triangle Experience” for the second time, according to Live for Live Music. The experience will provide attendees an immersive look into “world-famous music landmarks, tucked-away hamlets, and one-of-a-kind stops along the Gold Record Road.”
In direct partnership with the Recording Academy’s non-profit MusiCares, Pilgrimage will be donating a portion of every ticket sale to helping members of the music community that are in need.
