Last years inaugural Pilgrimage Festival remains one of my favorite memories of my first year in Nashville.

The eclectic festival returns again this year with an even better line-up then the first. They recently released their full daily line-ups, highlighting incredible musicians and up-and-coming bands, that are bound to draw an even bigger crowd this year. If you’re into meandering around farmland, swinging from hammocks while you drink wine and listen to some of the best music across various genres, this is one of those festivals you don’t want to miss out on.┬áThe festival will return to The Park at Harlinsdale in Franklin, TN on September 24 and 25, 2016.
