In an eye-catching unveil, the lineup was revealed on The Nashville Sign, an iconic local billboard towering above Nashville’s “Gateway to Midtown" (the corner of Broadway and West End) that highlights major events and reflects the vibrant spirit of Music City. Festival producer Kevin Griffin was on-site to help share the exciting news, and the 2023 Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival lineup was also shared by the Tennessean and livestreamed in WSMV's Wednesday morning broadcast.
Spotlighted as a "bucket list" music festival by Garden & Gun, Pilgrimage has "quickly made a name for itself" as “its proximity to Music City likely has something to do with the top-to-bottom strength in the lineup" and a "slate of activities" for attendees of all ages to enjoy. Unique, one-of-a-kind Pilgrimage experiences set for 2023 include the return of the Gibson Mobile Garage, featuring the Infinite Guitar Tunnel and limited edition merchandise.
The 2022 festival continued the Pilgrimage tradition of what the Tennessean called "two nearly 12-hour days of rollicking music, local arts and culture, and family-friendly fun," solidifying the event's reputation as a music festival with a local focus and "a staple of the festival season in Middle Tennessee," as declared by the Nashville Scene.
Pilgrimage is produced by Better Than Ezra frontman Kevin Griffin, W. Brandt Wood and Michael Whelan and has established itself as a music and cultural festival, highlighting area creators of all kinds including chefs, artisans, jewelers, brewers and more at the Americana Music Triangle Experience, Makers Village, Craft Beer Hall and additional areas for festivalgoers to experience.
