At last, following COVID-19 related cancellations and postponements, Dreamville Festival has returned to descend on North Carolina for a two-day extravaganza of live Hip Hop performances.
As promised in the announcement on Monday (March 28), Dreamville fans who can’t make it out to Dorothea Dix Park for the live in-person experience can tune into Amazon Music’s social media channels, which teamed up with J. Cole’s high-powered lyrical outfit to broadcast the festival.
Similar to years past, a star-studded lineup is featured in the 2022 edition of Dreamville Festival and includes appearances from J. Cole, Wale, Ja Rule and Ashanti, DJ Drama with T.I., Jeezy and Lil Wayne.
Other highlighted headliners included Lil Baby, T-Pain, HipHopDX 2022 Rising Star BIA and Wiz Khalifa, who is set to perform his fan-beloved Kush & Orange juice project at the festival.
As day one is already underway, artists such as Lute and Fivio Foreign have already touched the stage.
In addition to the return of the festival, the entire Dreamville squad teamed up with DJ Drama to drop their 15-track D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape which includes contributions from J. Cole, JID, Ari Lennox, EarthGang, Bas, Cozz, Lute and Omen. The project also features guest verses from artists such as 2 Chainz, A$AP Ferg, Young Nudy, Sheck Wes, Reason, G Perico and Kenny Mason.
