J.Cole’s Dreamville Festival Announces 2020 Return

– Dreamville
J. Cole is bringing his very own Dreamville Festival back for a second year at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, N.C. 
Tickets to the shindig go on sale Dec. 11 at noon ET. Discounted tickets are available now with presale codes from www.DreamvilleFest.com. General admission tickets start at $79 and VIP packages start at $229. 
The event is produced by Dreamville Records and ScoreMore Shows, which was acquired by Live Nation in 2018.  A portion of the ticket proceeds will be donated to the Dreamville Foundation and Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy. 
“On behalf of the Dreamville team, we couldn’t be more proud to announce the festival’s return to Raleigh and the beautiful state of North Carolina. Being able to experience firsthand the positive and substantial impact that this festival made in the local community was a humbling experience and something I hope we can continue to build upon for years to come,” Ibrahim “IB” Hamad, President of Dreamville Records and J. Cole’s manager, said in a statement.
Originally scheduled for September of 2018, Hurricane Florence forced the inaugural Dreamville Festival to be postponed into April, but it did stage successfully for more than 40,000 attendees. 
The lineup included lots of artists from J. Cole’s Dreamville label like Bas, Cozz, Ari Lennox, J.I.D., Lute, Omen, and Earthgang, as well as SZA, Big Sean, 21 Savage, 6lack, Nelly, Teyana Taylor, and Rapsody. 
ScoreMore Shows’ Sacha Stone Guttfreund told Pollstar last year: “I think we’ve continued to see the development of artist curated festivals and the success that they can have. In general, we have so many festivals in the marketplace and when we’re honest with ourselves we know that it is the artists that make the festival – that will never change. Can we establish great brands that people trust? Sure, but they trust us to deliver the right artists – the people they want to see. When an artist connects with any of us culturally, we continue to trust and invest in the art and the message.”
