Dreamville Festival is returning to Raleigh, North Carolina in April 2024, with ticket sales happening later this year.
Last year set a record with more than 100,000 attendees (spread across both days) from across the globe hitting up Raleigh to check out the festival thrown by J. Cole and the Dreamville Fest team. “Dreamville Fest 2023 was a major cultural moment for the spring festival season,” Dreamville Festival President Adam Roy says. “We had amazing performances from some of the biggest artists of my generation, and we plan to bring that same energy in 2024!”
Serving as an annual destination for music fans worldwide, Dreamville Festival will once again return to Dorothea Dix Park—the largest public park in Raleigh. With over 300 acres of wide-open fields, skyline views, rolling meadows, and shady groves, there’s plenty of space for fans to stretch out. Family friendly attractions, carnival rides, and art installations will be on hand, as well as a place for local vendors, food trucks, and community organizations to share their goods and services.
The festival will continue its emphasis on building community, welcoming diversity and inclusivity while serving as an annual reunion for Dreamville fans across the globe. Dreamville Festival also provides a multi-million dollar economic boost to North Carolina, as well as the positive and cultural impact it brings to the community during its festival dates each spring.
The lineup hasn’t been announced yet, but last year’s headliners included Drake, Burna Boy, Lil Durk, Usher, and many more. Other performers included Summer Walker, J.I.D., Ari Lennox, City Girls, Sean Paul, Waka Flocka Flame, GloRilla, EARTHGANG and more. Some surprise appearances from last year’s show included sets from Lil Wayne, Lil Uzi Vert, and 21 Savage.
While the festival last year was wildly successful, attendees did report having problems with the internet while attending. The Uber app also experienced problems on Saturday night of the 2023 festival, leaving some festival goers stranded. Maybe arrange a ride home with a friend, or order an Uber/Lyft ahead of time for a departure? You can do that, you know.
