Dreamville Festival

North Carolina-raised, Grammy Award-winning, and multi-platinum hip-hop artist J. Cole's Dreamville Festival returns next spring - expanding to two days - at Dorothea Dix Park. 

Dates: Saturday, April 2 + Sunday, April 3, 2022

Tickets: On sale Friday, October 1 at 10:00 am

Location: The Big Field at Dix Park

As one of the most popular and largest artist-curated music festivals in the country, fans can look forward to a weekend celebration curated by Cole himself where he invites some of his favorite artists and collaborators to perform in his home state of North Carolina. 2022 music lineup will be revealed soon.

The festival will bring together local residents and travelers from across the globe to gather together and enjoy incredible music performances while at the historic Dorothea Dix Park, Raleigh’s signature city park. Having grown up in nearby Fayetteville, Cole and his Dreamville team hope to once again shine a light on the special place that has helped to shape him into the successful and creative artist he is today.


As safety is the number one priority for festival organizers, Dreamville Festival is implementing new entry rules to help keep patrons, artists, and staff safe. In order to gain entry to the event, the festival will require proof of COVID-19 vaccinations or negative COVID-19 test results that are obtained within 72 hours of attending the event. More information on the new safety guidelines and entry rules can be found on the festival website.

A portion of proceeds from the 2022 event will be donated to the official Dreamville Festival charity partners, the Dreamville Foundation and Dix Park Conservancy.
