J. Cole’s inaugural Dreamville Festival was set to take place this Saturday (Sept. 15) in Raleigh, NC. Headlined by Cole, the one-day event also featured a loaded lineup that included SZA, Big Sean, Young Thug, Nelly, Teyana Taylor, Rapsody and more. After working tirelessly to try and keep the festival on schedule, Cole World and Dreamville announced on Monday (Sept. 10) that the festival has been cancelled due to Hurricane Florence set to impact the U.S. east coast and Carolinas later this week.

Mannn. Due to this Hurricane heading to NC, we have to cancel Dreamville Festival. We’re working to get another date, but right now safety is most important,” tweeted J. Cole. “I appreciate everybody that was headed to rock with us. 30,000 + were expected.” Fans who purchased tickets for the 1st ever Dreamville Festival will receive a 100% refund via their point of purchase.
