The daylong Festival is ready for a second chance after being washed away by Hurricane Florence.
The daylong music event at Dorothea Dix Park is April 6, and North Carolina’s Cole has revealed the much anticipated lineup with many of the same acts that were announced in the fall, according to News & Observer.
“We backkkkkkkkk,” Cole tweeted Tuesday.
Cole will headline the show, which also will feature SZA, Big Sean, 21 Savage, 6lack, Nelly, Teyana Taylor, Davido, Bas, J.I.D., Grammy-nominated Triangle resident Rapsody, Cozz, Saba, Earth Gang, Ari Lennox, Omen, Charlotte’s Lute and Raleigh’s Mez.
Gates open at 12 noon.
The festival initially was scheduled for the fall but was washed away by Hurricane Florence, as were most other indoor and outdoor events at that time.
But the Grammy-nominated rapper and former Fayetteville resident regrouped, turning the second take of Dreamville Festival into a fundraiser.
Among the acts added to this revived festival are 21 Savage, who, according to The Source magazine, just recently started performing again after being arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents earlier this year. Atlanta artist 6lack was also added.
The new Dreamville lineup doesn’t include Rich the Kid or Young Thug, who were in the original list last year.
Ticket-holders who bought tickets for Sept. 15 had to decide in October whether they would continue to use them.
