Justin Timberlake just landed a major gig at a Tennessee music festival. And, no, he’s not headlining the event; he’s actually signed on as a partner and producer.
According to Pitchfork, the 35-year-old artist will oversee the direction of the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, which launched in 2015 in Franklin, Tennessee. Timberlake, who was born and raised near Memphis, will join a group of festival producers, which now includes his own creative director and longtime friend Trace Ayala.
"I couldn’t be more excited about becoming part of The Pilgrimage Music & Culture Festival," Timberlake said in press release. "Being a Tennessee native and now a member of the community in Franklin, I have been watching the development of the festival over the past two years. For me, this is an amazing opportunity to help build an exceptional event and contribute to my community."
The two-day festival will go down Sept. 24-25 on Harlinsdale Farm. This year’s lineup is especially diverse, as it includes acts like Beck, Cake, Kacey Musgraves, Violent Femmes, as well as Daryl Hall and John Oates.
