The Dreamville Fest has just announced its full line-up for this year’s festival. Held each spring in Raleigh, North Carolina, the iconic Rap and R&B festival is an entirely African-American-owned enterprise curated by the legendary J. Cole alongside his Dreamville crew.
For this year’s edition slated for April 1st & 2nd, the festival has announced a stunning line-up of headliners and performers. While the festival serves as an annual reunion for Dreamville Records as Cole taps the entire roster to perform at the fest including Ari Lennox, Bas, J.I.D, EarthGang, Cozz, and Omen, plus Lute who hails from nearby Charlotte, this year will have the OVO bossman and ‘Her Loss’ emcee Drake headlining the two-day festival.
Besides Champagne Papi and Cole as headliners, the festival is set to feature Usher, Chicago’s OTF frontman Lil Durk, Sean Paul, City Girls, Key Glock, Waka Flocka Flame and Burna Boy. Check out the full ‘Dreamville Fest 2023’ line-up here.
Cole teased “the hardest lineup ever” just ahead of the announcement on Twitter. Check it out below.
Notably, this year’s edition falls short of inviting the ‘Kant Nobody’ emcee Lil Wayne. Besides Weezy, who headlined the fest last year, Atlanta’s 4pf bossman Lil Baby will not perform at the Dreamville Fest 2023 as well. However, with Wayne and Baby gearing up for new music this year, a surprise appearance during Drake and Cole’s live set can’t be ruled out.
Look out for the ‘Dreamville Fest 2023’.
