J. Cole recently announced that his Dreamville Music Festival will take place in spring 2023. The two-day event is set to unfold in Raleigh, North Carolina’s Dorothea Dix Park on April 1-2.
The first edition of Dreamville, originally scheduled to happen in September 2018, got postponed due Hurricane Florence and took place at Dix Park on April 6, 2019. The first year lineup featured Cole, Big Sean, Nelly, SZA, 21 Savage, 6LACK, Teyana Taylor, Davido, Saba and more.
The festival could not be held in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.
The festival returned this year and featured sets from Lil Baby, Kehlani, Wizkid, Wale, Rico Nasty, Moneybagg Yo and the entire Dreamville roster, including Ari Lennox, EarthGang and J.I.D., among others.
According to the organizers, the 2022 festival attracted over 80,000 fans and created more than $6.7 million in economic impact on the local Raleigh and Wake County communities.
“Dreamville Festival wants to keep growing and building off the success of the expanded two-day event last year. Our team is excited to reunite with our Dreamville family from around the world next spring,” said Dreamville Festival President Adam Roy. “Day ones, JID fans, Ari fans, music fans, everyone is welcome. Consider this your personal invite. Come through, you won’t want to miss Dreamville 2023.”
The lineup for the 2023 event has not yet been released. The organizers have promised “incredible music performances featuring Cole’s own favorite musical artists and collaborators who are traveling worldwide to perform in his home state of North Carolina.”
