Dreamville Music Festival 2024

Held each spring in Raleigh at Dix Park, Dreamville Festival is an outdoor hip-hop music celebration curated by internationally-acclaimed superstar and NC native, J. Cole, alongside his Dreamville record label team.

One of the most anticipated annual events in the state of North Carolina, the festival acts as a perfect complement to the existing event landscape and cultural fabric of the city of Raleigh — bringing together local residents with fans from across the country and around the world!

As a proud Black-owned music festival, Dreamville continues to emphasize community, diversity, and inclusivity throughout the onsite fan experience each spring. A portion of proceeds from the 2024 event will be donated to the official Dreamville Festival charity partners, the Dreamville Foundation and Dix Park Conservancy.
