Nashville-area music fans never rest. Just days after the Americana Music Festival came to a close, fans will turn out in record numbers for the third annual Pilgrimage and Cultural Festival the weekend of Sept. 23 and 24.
It’s a festival of remarkable range with performances by Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder, the Avett Brothers, Better Than Ezra, the Jerry Douglas Band, Trombone Shorty, Walk the Moon, Mavis Staples and many more.
It’s also a very civilized event, with shows running from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on both days. Little wonder that entire families come out. It’s a very kid-friendly event, with many programs for “Lil’ Pilgrims.”
Timberlake is a partner in the venture and his performance is clearly the most anticipated of the weekend. No pressure.
