NEW YORK (AP) — Another music festival is making its debut — this one outside of Nashville, Tennessee, and paying homage to history.

The Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival will launch this September with a lineup that includes Willie Nelson, Weezer, Sheryl Crow, Neko Case, Iron & Wine and Jimmy Cliff, among others. It will be held in Franklin, just outside Nashville.

Organizers said Tuesday that many of the acts will be performing acoustically and will do so on wood-clad stages. They'll also have several collaborations among the artists.

Food will also play a role with a "Kitchen Stage."

The festival will be held Sept. 26-27 at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm.
