As promised, we have been working hard on refunds for our ticket holders. All refunds will be processed to the original credit card holder based on the original purchase price through Frontgate in the next 3 weeks:
While the cancellations of Pilgrimage’s Saturday afternoon and Sunday programming due to inclement and dangerous weather including overall site safety conditions is disappointing for everyone, we fully support the decision made by Chief Todd Horton and the City of Franklin. The safety of our patrons, guests, artists, and staff is the first priority. The lightning strikes on Saturday afternoon forced an evacuation and along with the persistent rainfall has left the site unsafe and unavailable to use. We remain committed to working with Chief Horton and the city as partners now and in the future.
We are saddened that we can not move forward with the festival as well but please know that we will be issuing refunds as soon as possible. We are finalizing those details and will keep you posted.
For those asking if yesterday was canceled because of rain, there was lightning in the area that was passing directly over the City of Franklin. It eventually crossed over our 8 mile safety perimeter with 69 recorded lightning strikes over the course of the temporary evacuation and one strike as close as .9 miles away. The safest place to seek shelter was vehicles, The Factory and Liberty Elementary. Vehicles were held until attendees evacuating on foot were cleared from the streets as this was part of our shelter in place evacuation plan. Once pedestrians were safe, we allowed cars to leave the site.
