Dreamville Fest — one of the largest artist-run festivals in the US — announced its 2023 lineup. World-famous hip-hop and R&B artists J. Cole, Drake, and Usher will headline the third-annual music festival April 1-2 in Dix Park.
Other performers include Burna Boy, Lil Durk, Sean Paul, Waka Flocka Flame, Summer Walker, and Earthgang. See this year’s full lineup of 25+ musicians.
Fayetteville native and hip-hop superstar J. Cole launched the annual spring festival in 2018, but it was postponed a year due to Hurricane Florence. After dubbing itself “the world’s most resilient festival,” the festival returned in 2022 after being pushed back twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Approximately 80,000 people attended last year’s event, which featured artists like Kehlani, Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain, and Lil Wayne. The event generated $6.7 million in direct economic impact to Wake County, according to the DRA.
Two-day tickets start at $250, plus fees.
