“We always set out to curate something special. Our Dreamville family has been patiently waiting for the fest’s return and now we’re back with a lineup unlike anything else found in today’s event landscape,” said Dreamville Partner and Festival President Adam Roy in a statement.
Cole first announced his Dreamville Festival in 2018, alongside a lineup that featured SZA, Big Sean, Young Thug and several other artists. However, the inaugural event was canceled due to Hurricane Florence, and the festival’s first iteration did not occur until April of 2019. Dreamville Festival 2022 will mark the second edition of the event, after the 2020 festival was also canceled due to the COVID pandemic.
Two-day general admission tickets are now available to purchase for $299 USD on the festival’s website. Additionally, GA+ tickets are available for $349 USD, along with a series of VIP tickets, which begin at $599 USD.
