The Big Field at Dix Park
Community Event

Dreamville Music Festival

Dreamville Festival is a one-day, 40,000-person music and culture festival taking place at Dorothea Dix Park. Preparations for the festival will affect the visitor experience around the park property beginning Friday, March 29. Increased traffic throughout Dix Park is to be expected along with road closures April 1 - 9. Follow the link below for more information.



Dreamville Festival will be the first event of its kind for the region as it looks to provide a thoughtfully-curated, multi-stage music event from J. Cole, who himself was raised in nearby Fayetteville, North Carolina. The festival offers an opportunity for J. Cole to give back to his home state that has helped shape the artist he has become with a one-of-a-kind celebration of local culture, food and art that also features a curated selection of music performers blending together some of today’s biggest national acts with exciting up-and-comers.

The festival itself aims to provide a unique opportunity for locals and traveling visitors alike to gather and enjoy a music celebration in one of Raleigh’s most beautiful and historic locations, Dorothea Dix Park – Raleigh’s largest city park with over 300 acres of public greenspace. Dreamville Festival’s ultimate goal is to not only have a positive and substantial economic and cultural impact on the city itself and the surrounding region, but also to become one of the most anticipated annual events in the city – one that is a perfect complement to the existing event landscape and cultural fabric of the City of Raleigh.

Benefiting the Dreamville Foundation and Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy.
