Rap superstar J. Cole’s record label’s annual namesake music festival is back. After being canceled in 2020 amid coronavirus concerns, last year, the festival expanded much to the pleasure of avid supporters. The multi-day lineup continues this year, as Dreamville Festival 2023 will be held on both April 1 and 2 at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina.
This year’s festival will be headlined by Usher (on Saturday, April 1), J. Cole, Drake, and Burna Boy (on Sunday, April 2). Of course, Dreamville acts will grace the stage. Both Ari Lennox and JID’s respective tours will wrap up at the end of next month, giving them both plenty of time to prepare for their Dreamville Fest sets.
Minutes before dropping the lineup, Cole teased, “Bout to drop the hardest festival lineup ever @Dreamvillefest sheeeeeeeesh [crying laughing emojis].”

Whereas Bas is still in a full-on album preparation mood, releasing single, “Diamonds,” in late January. Fellow Dreamville Records signees Earthgang and Omen are slated to perform on the festival’s opening day.
Other notable acts on the lineup include Lil Durk, City Girls, Sean Paul, Sir, Summer Walker, Jessie Reyez, Baby Tate, and GloRilla.
