Justin Timberlake will be honoring his hometown with a special showcase this fall.
The "Can't Stop the Feeling" singer is set to produce the 2016 Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, a two-day event going down at The Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, Tennessee on September 24-25. The fest, now in its second year, will find Timberlake overseeing the direction alongside his creative director Trace Ayala. Although he isn't set to perform, JT will be among the many watching Beck, Hall and Oates, Jason Isbell, Kacey Musgraves, and more hit the stage.
In a press release for the festival announcement, he stated the following:
I couldn’t be more excited about becoming part of The Pilgrimage Music & Culture Festival. 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.
In addition to his work on the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, JT is also set to star in the upcoming animated film, "Trolls." Hyping up the film and the forthcoming soundtrack, which is led by his chart-topping single "Can't Stop the Feeling," he shared the soundtrack that features appearances from Ariana Grande, Gwen Stefani, Anna Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, and more.
