Dreamville Fest will return to Raleigh’s historic Dorothea Dix Park for its fourth year April 6-7, following last year’s event that drew over 100,000 attendees over the two-day weekend.

This year’s festival will be headlined by SZA, Nicki Minaj, SchoolBoy Q, Chris Brown, and J. Cole along with Lil Yachty, Key Glock, Rae Sremmurd, Jeezy, Sexyy Red, Luh Tyler, and the usual cast of Dreamville artists (except Ari Lennox) including J.I.D, EarthGang, Bas, Lute, Cozz, and Omen. Also on the bill for the first time is fast-rising Winston-Salem rapper, TiaCorine.

Curated by J. Cole, Dreamville Fest has become one of the largest artist-led festivals in the world since its launch in 2018, with attendees from 23 countries across four continents as well as all 50 U.S. states in 2023. The 2022 festival generated $6.7 million in direct economic impact within Wake County, according to the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau, and an estimated $7 million-plus in 2023.
