J. Cole’s Dreamville Fest 2020 was set to take place in a few weeks on April 4, 2020, however it has been announced that it is postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The second edition of the festival will now take place on August 29th at Dorthea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina.

“We recognize there’s been a lot of questions about the status of Dreamville Festival and in light of recent developments, we are excited to let you know we are moving forward with a new date,” the festival organizers said in a statement. “While this decision has been extremely difficult to make, the safety of our fans, artists and staff is always our top priority, and nothing will ever take precedence over your well-being,” they continued. “We now encourage everyone to follow the guidelines and various preventive measures put forth by local and national health authorities.

Last year’s lineup featured SZA, Big Sean, 21 Savage and Teyana Taylor. The 2020 lineup was supposed to be revealed this week, but due to the rescheduling all acts will need to confirm the new date. The lineup will soon be posted on the festival’s website.  Tickets will be automatically honored at the new date, but refunds will also be available upon request.
