J. Cole is continuing to elevate his status as one of the greatest rappers of this generation. After recently dropping his latest album “KOD” just last week, he’s continuing to make big moves.
In an announcement made today, Cole is said to be bringing a large format music festival to his home state of North Carolina. Titled the Dreamville Festival, the inaugural event will debut Sept. 15 in Raleigh at Dorothea Dix Park. Performers will be announced at a later date. There’s no word if Cole himself will be performing, but fans can expect a mixture of local performers, acts from the Dreamville label and contemporary stars.
Via a press release, the festival will “offer an opportunity for J. Cole to give back to his home state that has helped shape the artist he has become with a one-of-a-kind celebration of local culture, food and art that also features a curated selection of music performers blending together some of today’s biggest national acts with exciting up-and-comers.”
A limited number of pre-sale tickets priced at $49-$89 are on sale now at http://www.DreamvilleFest.com, for those who signed up for his newsletter. Tickets for general public go on sale Monday.
