Big Sean, Young Thug, Nelly and More to Perform at J. Cole’s 2018 Dreamville Festival
Due to safety concerns as a result of Hurricane Florence, the Dreamville Festival scheduled for Sept. 15 has been canceled. Dreamville issued a statement on social media Monday afternoon (Sept. 10). Read the statement in full below.
Joining Cole and other Dreamville artists such as Bas, J.I.D and EarthGang for the Sept. 15 event will be Young Thug, Big Sean, Nelly, Rich The Kid, Rapsody, Cozz, Saba, Omen, YBN Cordae, Lute, King Mez, SZA, Davido, Teyana Taylor and Ari Lenox. The one-day event will take place at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, N.C.
Cole originally announced the Dreamville Festival in April, one week after the release of his KOD album. Since then, the North Carolina rapper has been busy on tour with Thugger, Jaden Smith and EarthGang. The trek continues on Sept. 2 with a show in Boise, Idaho and wraps up on on Oct. 10 in Boston.
In related news, Cole recently lent a hand to Bas on the rapper's latest album Milky Way. Cole appears on the song "Tribe" and is one of the few artists that assist on the project. Bas also enlisted the help of Ari Lennox, A$AP Ferg, Correy C, Lion Babe, Moe Moks and Moma & Guy for Milky Way.
Cole also joined Bas for the "Tribe" video, appearing alongside the rapper in the Andrew Nisinson-directed visual, which finds Bas and Cole hitting up the streets of Miami's Little Haiti for a day trip.
