J. Cole Announces First-Ever Dreamville Festival In Raleigh, North Carolina
Hometown hero J. Cole will host the first-ever Dreamville Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina — roughly a one-hour drive from Fayetteville where he grew up.
J. Cole has plenty to be happy for as his latest project, the surprise album KOD, has broke both Spotify and Apple Music streaming records and has been the highest selling opening week of this year. To celebrate his accomplishments, Grown Simba announced the first-ever Dreamville Festival to take place roughly an hour from his hometown in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Only a one-day festival, Dreamville Records partnered with the Texas-based ScoreMore Shows to take over Dorothea Dix Park, which sits on 300-acres of land, and is scheduled for Sept. 15, 2018 to jump off. With no acts yet to be announced, we will be keeping a solid eye as more news breaks in the upcoming weeks. VIP and general admission tickets are on sale currently at Dreamville Fest dot com.
“Our entire Dreamville team is proud to finally unveil today details about Dreamville Festival, something which has been a long-time dream for all of us, especially Cole,” Ibrahim “IB” Hamad, President of Dreamville Records and J. Cole’s manager, wrote in a statement. “We hope to give back to the community with a celebration of all the things that makes Raleigh and North Carolina itself so great — music, food, art, culture and more. This event will ultimately give Cole a chance to make a direct impact to the people that helped shape who he is today.”
Dreamville Fest will benefit non-profit organizations such as The Dreamville Foundation and Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy.
