2019 Pilgrimage Music Festival, Day 2

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival organizers announced on Monday that all guests, artists and staff will have to have proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter the festival grounds Sept. 25 and 26.

The festival updated its COVID-19 policy out of a commitment “to the health and safety of all guests, artists and staff” and “in order to protect those on festival grounds,” according to a news release issued Monday.

Hosted in its seventh year at The Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, the festival is branded as a celebration of art, culture and diverse music. This year’s music lineup includes headliners Dave Matthews Band, The Black Keys, Maren Morris, Cage The Elephant and more.

Five stages featuring 50-plus acts will stand on the 200-acre park, boasting main stages Fender Premium Audio Midnight Sun and Gold Record Road Stage, alongside local stages Shady Grove, Lil’ Pilgrims Family Stage and Americana Music Triangle Experience, built by Mike Wolfe from HISTORY’s “American Pickers.”

More details will be emailed to ticket holders, and the festival website will be updated in the coming days.
