Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival - September 24-25, 2016
We are so excited to see the lineup for this fall's Pilgrimage Festival. A client of BoneLaw, this event is in its second year and slated to be better than the first.
The Tennessean has a great article about what the planners learned from the inaugural event and changed made as a result. To read the article, click here.
An excerpt from the article:
What's new for year 2?
We talked to Pilgrimage Festival co-founders Kevin Griffin and Brandt Wood about what's new and improved about Pilgrimage in its second year:
It'll be easier to get a beverage: "We're putting a few more bars in, because people came thirsty," says Wood. "We noticed some (long) beer lines, and we were called out on it. We are going to fix that by adding more bartenders, more bars and the same great selection of craft beer, wine and spirits. We weren't sure how robust it needed to be, and it was impressive. People came out to party."
Griffin had to be talked into booking his own band, Better Than Ezra: "I didn't want it to be, 'Hey! I started a festival, and I'm playing!'" Griffin explains. "You know? In a spot (on the lineup) that's too high. I didn't want to give anybody any ammo (to criticize the festival), because I wanted to have a purity of the whole thing. This is what this (festival) is about. It's not about my performing career. But so many people said, 'We want you to play,' and I can get my band cheap." Read more. . .
