J. Cole Announces Dreamville Music Festival In North Carolina
It's been a big week for J. Cole.
Fresh off of dropping his fifth album KOD, and likely earning his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 along the way, then premiering a new music video starring GRAMMY-nominated comedian Kevin Hart, Cole has shown no signs of slowing down.
His next big move? Launching a brand-new music festival in his home state of North Carolina.
Details are currently sparse on Cole's new Dreamville Music Festival, beyond a colorful website and a sign-up link to gain access to early-bird presale tickets. However, given that Dreamville Fest will be Cole's label Dreamville Records' first foray into the world of large-scale music festivals, it is highly likely that the event will see an exciting billing of rising talent co-signed by Cole himself, along with some special guests.
"We’ve been trying to put this festival together for a few years now,” explained Dreamville Records manager/president Ibrahim 'Ib' Hamad to the Associated Press. "It's going to be a variety of different acts that we love or excite us … [and] something we want to build for years and years to come."
Dreamville Music Festival will take place in Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, N.C. on Sept. 15. Presale tickets for those who previous signed up via the festival's official website went on sale on Apr. 27, and tickets for the general public are set to go on sale on Monday, Apr. 30.
