I saw Pearl Jam tweeted there will be single-day tickets for sale this Friday, for anyone interested in attending just Sunday
I'm sure it's a great festival, and the venue looks beautiful, but I've got a few gripes about Pilgrimage.1 hour setlist for headliners? I know, I know, it's a festival... with lots of great acts, and lots of diversity, but I'm kinda surprised that they can't allot another half hour to the last 2 or 3 acts each day. Prior schedules indicate that the headliners usually get 1 hour and 15 minutes. However, we all know that festival headliners usually are off the stage 10 to 15 minutes early, so that the crowds disperse. Lineup for Saturday seems stacked compared to Sunday: JT, Avetts, Gary Clark Jr, Walk the Moon, Trombone Shorty, Better Than Ezra, Shovels & Rope, Jerry Douglas Band. Nothing wrong with EV, Ryan Adams, Mavis Staples, Langhorne Slim and others, but it seems like overall less firepower on Sunday, especially when you consider overlapping sets.Lastly, why is everything such a damn secret with Pilgrimage? I realize that it's strategy to sell both days, but WOW... Daily lineups were kept under wraps for a while. Schedules aren't released til later. I emailed Pilgrimage last week to ask if single day GA tickets would be sold; they didn't know. I asked if single day VIP tickets would be sold; they didn't know. Any possibility that more VIP weekend passes would be released; they didn't know. It's like you have to identify patterns, and collect clues, while chasing a shadowy figure through hidden passageways.... to get info on a "chill" music festival.
I am still thinking of travelling to Louisville and Franklin for both shows for fun but will it be worth it? especially as a canadian......this this tough....
@PJNB ps I will be in NB by the end of the month for Canada Day until July 4th. Let me know if there is anything checking out!
With all the Europe merch coming out and being awesome, are we anticipating a merch tent or two here? Surely the lines will not be crazy at a festival, right? RIGHT?!?!?!
