Kehlani, Ari Lennox & J. Cole To Headline Dreamville Festival

The festival returns for its second year this spring.

J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival is back for another year, and the lineup looks amazing. The concert weekend — named after the rapper's recording company — is a “thoughtfully curated experience,” featuring a mix of scrappy up and comers and today’s most popular artists.

According to the event website, the “No Role Modelz” rapper created the North Carolina based festival to give back to his hometown. Born and raised in the city of Fayetteville, J. Cole largely credits his career to his community.

After a successful debut in 2021, Dreamville Festival is ready to kick things up a notch and continue their tradition of celebrating rap-music. Keep reading for everything you need to know about the upcoming, star-studded, event.
