J. Cole and Dreamville Records’ annual festival is set to return in Spring 2023.

On Monday, the label confirmed the show will return to Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 1 and 2, 2023. The festival made its post COVID-19 lockdown return earlier this year following a three-year hiatus. Early-Bird ticket sale registration for the ‘23 fest is open here, with further announcements regarding the line-up set to follow soon. 

“Dreamville Festival wants to keep growing and building off the success of the expanded two-day event last year. Our team is excited to reunite with our Dreamville family from around the world next spring,” said Dreamville Festival President Adam Roy. “Day ones, JID fans, Ari fans, music fans, everyone is welcome. Consider this your personal invite. Come through, you won’t want to miss Dreamville 2023.”

The 2022 line-up for the festival included the expected Dreamville signees, including Earthgang and J. Cole, alongside heavy-hitters like Lil Baby, Wiz Khalifa, Kehlani, and Fivio Foreign among others. 

In a press release earlier this year, it was revealed that the 2022 fest brought in a combined attendance count of 80,000. The economic impact, which was billed as a “conservative estimate” brought in more than $6 million for North Carolina’s Wake County, per figures from the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“My team and I continue to be awed by the overwhelming support we’ve received since closing out the second Dreamville Festival this April,” Roy said, who noted that the label will continue to put on the festival "for years to come."
