How much will this cost me?

What else do I get with the ticket?

Taken straight from the press release here…

This year the festival unveiled an exclusive new experience called The Grand Champion Experience with Blackberry Farm – a heralded culinary, event and hotel venue in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. The Grand Champion pass includes all the amenities provided in the VIP Village Experience, plus even more exclusive access to live performances, with Blackberry Farm culinary & beverage delights at the Festival, and a private Friday night banquet.

Pilgrimage will also feature a Made South Maker Village with over 60 local and regional craft vendors and Bell’s Brewery Craft Beer Hall with televised SEC and NFL football games. You can also experience the Millville, TN Market as well as the Farm to Turntable food truck park featuring 18 local food trucks including bars and shaded center court. Between sets, celebrate the musical heritage of the Deep South with the Americana Music Triangle Experience. And everything is conveniently located to historic downtown Franklin, TN at The Park at Harlinsdale! Festival-goers can plan their trip to Franklin as well as get more information and lodging suggestions at visitfranklin.com.

Why should I choose this festival over others?

The festival continues to drive tourism dollars to Williamson County and the Pilgrimage Foundation, the festival’s non-profit arm, will donate a portion of each ticket sale to benefit the City of Franklin and Friends of Franklin Parks. In addition, a portion of ticket sales will also benefit MusiCares, a nonprofit organization that was established by the Recording Academy™ to provide a wide range of emergency financial assistance and addiction recovery resources to members of the music community.
