For five weeks Lightning 100 and Miller Lite have partnered up to give twenty-five Nashville bands the chance to join the amazing line-up for the 2019 Pilgrimage Music and Culture Festival!

The finale saw our winners of the previous weeks competing again for the coveted spot. Where they would be sharing the stage with acts like The Killers, Keith Urban, Leon Bridges, and more. It was a close count with audience votes determining the ultimate winner… BRE KENNEDY!

Bre Kennedy wowed in week two of Lightning 100 and Miller Lite’s Play at Pilgrimage 2019, and kept that same energy for the big finale! Bre got her start in Los Angeles before relocating to Nashville in 2015. Since arriving in Nash Vegas, Bre has been busy putting out killer music, ranging from edge pop to intimate acoustic sets featuring her vintage Gibson! (Not to mention playing killer sets like the two that shook The 5 Spot this summer.) Dropping singles like “One Way” and “Slippin” all year, Bre released her EP Jealous of Birds on August 2nd!

Graciously accepting her spot to Play at Pilgrimage, Bre Kennedy made sure to shout out all the bands that joined her on stage and in the competition. Check out the full list of artists and photos from the finale down below!
