Dreamville 2020 will be coming back to Dix Park on Saturday, April 4, 2020, and pre-sale tickets are now on sale.
J. Cole’s music festival in Raleigh will be held for a second time at a similar date to last year’s April 6 festival.
The 2020 Dreamville headliners aren’t yet announced, but last year’s lineup included SZA, Nelly, 21Savage, Big Sean, 6LACK, Rapsody, and, of course, J. Cole.
J. Cole will curate the lineup again, which is expected to be released in 2020.
The 2019 festival drew 40,000 people to Dix Park, WRAL reported.

More about the festival’s history:
J. Cole has North Carolina ties — he was raised in Fayetteville.
The festival was in the works for years before it happened, The News & Observer reported. The first date hurricane-related delays from its original fall 2018 date.
Dreamville 2019 was largely seen as a positive test case for large-scale events in the 300+ acre Dix Park.
