In addition to announcing its return in 2023, J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival also unveiled what may be its strongest lineup yet.

On April 1 and 2, the Dreamville Festival will return to Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina. The “hardest festival lineup ever,” as Cole previously foreshadowed the lineup reveal on Twitter.

He didn’t appear to be joking either, as Usher is scheduled to play on Saturday, along with Ari Lennox, Lil Durk, City Girls, Sean Paul, Jessie Reyez, EarthGang, and others.

On Sunday, J. Cole and Drake will perform together for the first time ever to cap off the event, along with other artists like Burna Boy, GloRilla, J.I.D, Summer Walker, Bas, and Waka Flocka Flame.

The official Dreamville Festival website sells tickets. The complete lineup is listed below:

The Dreamville Festival, which features J. Cole and other renowned artists, has only taken place three times. Initially planned for 2018, Hurricane Florence prevented its debut.

The COVID-19 pandemic also interrupted the festival in 2020 and 2021. However, in 2022, the festival returned with a bang and featured a star-studded lineup including Lil Baby, Kehlani, J.I.D., T-Pain, and others. Additionally, DJ Drama hosted a Gangsta Grillz set with Jeezy, Lil Wayne, and T.I.

Despite the fact that Drake and Cole have only collaborated on two songs together—2011’s “In the Morning” from Cole’s first LP Cole World: The Sideline Story and 2013’s “Jodeci (Freestyle),” their friendship has been friendly for years.

Meanwhile, Cole’s professional basketball career may be credited to Drake. Complex said that Nicholas “Niko” Carino, co-owner of OVO and a part-owner of the Scarborough Shooting Stars, presented himself to Cole at a birthday celebration held by the 6 God after Cole signed with the Canadian Elite Basketball League’s Scarborough Shooting Stars last year.

Carino remarked, “You know, Dreamville and OVO are families. “Drake celebrated his birthday in Los Angeles last year. I heard you have your squad, which was the topic of conversation. It developed naturally from there.


After missing out for two years due to the COVID-19 epidemic, Raleigh, North Carolina’s Dreamville Festival will return on April 1 and 2, 2023.

Performers including Usher, Ari Lennox, Lil Durk, City Girls, Burna Boy, J.I.D., Summer Walker, and many more are scheduled to appear this year. For the first time ever, fans of J. Cole and Drake will be able to see them perform together to live this coming Sunday. The festival continues to pull in music fans from all around the world because of its stellar lineups.
