Dreamville Festival is coming back. The two-day Raleigh, North Carolina event was canceled this and last year due to the pandemic, but is now set to return in 2022.
According to announcements from Dreamville’s Twitter account and the label’s head honcho J. Cole, the festival’s 2022 edition will take place at the historic Dorothea Dix Park on April 2 and 3. After being canceled for two years in a row, festival organizers wanted to come back “bigger and better” by expanding the event to two days, Dreamville Partner and Festival President Adam Roy said.
“We had to come back bigger and better than before,” he added. “With the fest moving to two days, Dreamville Festival is about to become the festival our team has always dreamt about. We want this to grow into one of the premier annual music experiences in the country.”
General admission and VIP tickets will be available for purchase on the Dreamville Festival website starting this Friday (Oct. 1) at 10 a.m. EST. For fans who are signed up for the festival’s newsletter, pre-sale tickets will be available on Tuesday (Sept. 28) at 10 a.m. EST.
According to organizers, attendees will be required to show proof of either a negative COVID-19 test result or vaccination to gain entry to the festival. A portion of the event’s proceeds will go to benefit Dreamville’s charity partners, the Dreamville Foundation and the Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy.
Although this will only be the second Dreamville Festival to take place, it will be the festival’s fourth year since launching in 2019. The inaugural one-day event saw performances by SZA, Big Sean, 21 Savage, 6LACK, Nelly, J. Cole and many more. Cole is expected to headline the fest once again, but the official 2022 lineup has not yet been announced.
