Fayetteville-native J. Cole is bringing Dreamville Festival back, and he’s bringing some notable friends along with him in the lineup – including Drake and Usher.
The third edition of the festival will be held at Dorothea Dix Park in Downtown Raleigh on April 1 and 2, 2023.
As with previous years, Cole is bringing back his entire Dreamville Records roster to perform.
“The expanded two-day event will also mark a rare reunion for Dreamville Records as Cole is bringing together the entire music roster to perform at the weekend event,” a release from Dreamville said. “including Ari Lennox, J.I.D, EARTHGANG, Bas, Cozz, Omen, and Lute.”
He’s also got some huge names to fill out the rest of the bill, including USHER, Sean Paul, Lil Durk, GloRilla, Waka Flaka Flame and more.
“With a continued emphasis on community, diversity, and inclusivity, Dreamville Festival will once again offer fans from across the globe a weekend celebration curated by J. Cole himself and featuring a variety of local vendors, food trucks, artisans, and community organizations from the greater Triangle area,” the release said. “Festival-goers can look forward to exploring the historic Dorothea Dix Park, Raleigh’s largest city park, and enjoying incredible music performances next April featuring Cole’s own favorite musical artists and collaborators who are traveling worldwide to perform in his home state of North Carolina.”
Cole was a man of few words in announcing the lineup on his Instagram, just filling his post with mind blown face emojis. Comments from fans on the post echoed that sentiment, with one fan saying “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better lineup.”
“Last spring, organizers welcomed 80,000 total attendees from across the globe including travelers from all 50 U.S. states and more than a dozen international countries, which were treated to a variety of family-friendly activities and local vendors, food trucks, and artisans from the greater Triangle area,” the release continued.
Tickets are on sale now at www.dreamvillefest.com, including GA, GA+ and VIP two-day passes.
