Raleigh, NC — Raleigh this weekend at Dorothea Dix Park with North Carolina native J. Cole’s 2-day concert is ready. The city has spent an entire week preparing parks for dozens of big-name artists and their fans.
According to the event’s organizers, the festival is an opportunity for Cole to give back to his home state and celebrate North Carolina culture.
The long-awaited festival features hip-hop and R&B icons such as T-Pain, Lil Baby, Ashanti, Lil Wayne and Ari Lennox.
There will be three distinct phases throughout the park. The biggest performers will perform on the “Shine” stage inside the park, located at the corner of Blair and Biggs Drive, according to a map from the festival released on Friday.
Organizers of the Dreamville Festival are aware that the event will compete with Saturday’s Final Four game, so the UNC-Duke game will be livestreamed on site next to the DJ Stage.
The weather is going to be perfect with temperatures in the 60s and 70s along with low humidity.

where to park
There will be some parking close to the Dreamville Festival at North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus, which is across the street from Dorothea Dix Park. Event organizers said those parking spaces would be limited and expected to fill up soon. To park at one of those locations, attendees must purchase a $30 one-day pass. Overnight parking is not permitted on the NC State campus, and event organizers said cars left overnight would be towed.
But there are other ways to go to a concert. Event organizers said the downtown shuttle is “110% the best move for you to get to and from the festival.”
Shuttles will pick up attendees from Moore Square at 200 S. Blount Street in downtown Raleigh and take attendees to the west entrance of the Dreamville Festival, which is close to walking through the festival’s limited parking in NC State. The Downtown Shuttle Pass is $20 and covers trips for both days of the festival. Shuttle will run non-stop from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
