“Dreamville Festival looks forward to working alongside so many local businesses again this spring. We hope these efforts will help provide a deeper impact on the local economy by supporting dozens of small independently-owned businesses like the 50+ food vendors scheduled to participate onsite at Dix Park,” said Dreamville Cofounder and Festival President Adam Roy.

Entering its fourth edition this spring, J Cole and his Dreamville team have firmly cemented themselves as the organizers behind the world’s largest artist-led music festival as well as executives leading one of the most powerful brands in today’s music industry. Their festival will continue to serve as an annual reunion for Dreamville fans worldwide as Raleigh residents and international travelers gather together each spring to experience a weekend celebration unlike any other while driving a multi-million economic impact to the greater Wake County region.

With a continued emphasis on community, diversity, and inclusivity, Dreamville Festival returns to its home at Dorothea Dix Park offering festival-goers many attractions, carnival rides, and immersive art installations, in addition to dozens of local vendors and artisans from the Wake Country region.

Although the full lineup has now been revealed, which includes headliners J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, SZA, and Chris Brown performing alongside some of the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B, fans should stay tuned as the full schedule is slated to drop soon featuring hours of live performances each day.

A limited number of two-day GA tickets are on sale now at, with a portion of proceeds being donated to the festival’s official charity partners, the Dreamville Foundation and Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy. Fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets today as last year’s week sold out weeks in advance.
