The Dreamville Festival 2023 has cemented itself as a must-attend event. On Tuesday (Feb. 28), Live Nation and Dreamville announced that J. Cole and Usher will be headlining the two-day event, with Drake serving as the former’s special guest.

The J. Cole and Dreamville team revealed the full music lineup for the Dreamville Festival, which will return to Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina from April 1-2.

Day one on Saturday, April 1 is headlined by Usher, and the day’s lineup is stocked with acts Lil Durk, Ari Lennox, City Girls, EARTHGANG and Key Glock to name a handful. Sunday is just as packed with Burna Boy, Summer Walker, J.I.D, GloRilla, Waka Flocka Flame, Mario and more. Of course, J. Cole is the Sunday headliner with The Boy from Toronto holding fort as his special guest on the mainstage (Burna Boy will be closing the second stage just before).

Dreamville fans will be in for a treat since the entire roster—Cole, Ari Lennox, J.I.D, EARTHGANG, Bas, Cozz, Omen and Lute—will all be performing over the weekend.

And as always, Dreamville will also put an emphasis on keeping the family vibes going with food vendors, artists and community organizations setting up shop in Dorothea Dix Park, which is Raleigh’s largest city park.
