5 memorable moments from the pilgrimage music festival, day 2
Festival goers flocked to Harlinsdale Farm on September 26 for the last day of the Pilgrimage Music Festival. After an impressive first day, the second day kept the magic alive with even more performance. Read below for five of the American songwriter’s favorite moments from day two of the two-day festival.
1. DAVE MATTHEWS BAND
Simply put, it was kind of a bucket list show. The Dave Matthews Band performed at the end of the pilgrimage evening to close the festival. Enough said.
2. CAGE THE ELEPHANT
Performing today on the Gold Record Road stage, the energy of Cage the Elephant was unparalleled. Lead singer Matt Shultz appeared on stage in a full metal costume and toured the stage performing hits like “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked”. Matt’s guitarist and older brother Brad Shultz also commanded the stage.
3. TANK & BANGAS
Tank & the Bangas, the New Orleans-based octet, brought the funk to Franklin. Lead singer Tarriona “Tank” Ball first honed her craft in slam poetry, which clearly helps her turn a phrase. The accompanying instruments included the groovy saxophone and the flute.
4. MORGAN WADE
Country star with a booming career, Morgan Wade’s performance was electric. Her hoarse voice echoed throughout the room as she played songs from her latest album, Bold.
The attention to detail at the Pilgrimage Music Festival is what really sets this festival apart. Whether it’s perfectly staggered show schedules or a food truck circle (which includes The Grilled Cheeserie), the venue is a pop-up community ready for a weekend of events. We can’t wait to be next year.
