Transport Yourself To Dreamville

One of the most influential and successful artists in modern music, J. Cole, and his Dreamville team are announcing that Dreamville Festival will officially return next spring to Raleigh, North Carolina on Saturday, April 1, and Sunday, April 2, 2023. This is going to be a dream! And now, the lineup is out there!

Dreamville recently revitalized the brand after three years off by becoming the largest music festival in the state of North Carolina in addition to being one of the most popular festivals in the whole world. 

The lineup for this year’s event is a treat, as well! Some of J. Cole’s favorite artists will be taking part in the festival for one of the most anticipated events of the year. Day 1 is going to be EPIC! Check out the lineup starting with USHER, and additional performances from Lil Durk, Ari Lennox, City Girls, Sean Paul, EARTHGANG, Jessie Reyez, and Key Glock, among others; while Sunday features one of the world’s biggest international superstars Burna Boy, as well as a curated selection of artists like Summer Walker, J.I.D, GloRilla, Bas, Waka Flaka Flame, Mario, and many more. 

To close out the 2023 edition of Dreamville Festival on Sunday night, J. Cole will welcome fellow international icon, Drake, to appear as a special guest during his headlining set on the festival main stage as the two will perform a medley of hits from each of their chart-topping catalogs, which collectively have come to define the sound of a generation. Burna Boy will headline and close out the second stage on Sunday, prior to J. Cole + Drake ending the weekend activities on the festival main stage. 

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 including Ari Lennox, J.I.D, EARTHGANG, Bas, Cozz, Omen, and Lute.

Last year, organizers welcomed 80,000 total attendees from across the globe to revel in the festival. This included 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. Dreamville Festival 2022 in total created a more than $6.7 million dollar economic impact on the local Raleigh and Wake County community. How awesome!

The festival continues to put its emphasis on community, diversity, and inclusivity. As a result, next year’s festival will once again bring together local residents and travelers alike to gather together and enjoy a weekend celebration curated by Cole himself. Festival-goers can look forward to exploring the historic Dorothea Dix Park, which is by far Raleigh’s largest city park while experiencing 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. 

“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.”
