New date arranged for postponed Raleigh festival

September 26, 2018 by  

Hurricane Florence forced the cancellation of the inaugural Dreamville Festival, but the event has been rescheduled and a new date in 2019 was recently announced, so people can look forward to the fun once again.

The event is the brainchild of Dreamville Records, which moved fast to lock in another date. Ibrahim Hamad, the president of the company, said they had to decide whether to try and hold the festival, move it, or cancel it entirely. Fans and members of the community spoke up in favor of moving it, and Hamad was pleased to announce the new date.

People who have already purchased tickets—30,000 were expected—can hang onto their tickets and use them on the new date, or they can have their money refunded. If they would like their money back, they need to make the request by October 5.

Organizers of events like this can work with a poster printing company to create colorful posters to help promote the performance.

The performers for the festival include rapper J. Cole, Tevana Taylor, Nelly, Big Sean, SZA, Young Thug. Cole, who is from Fayetteville, North Carolina, which was devastated by the storm, says part of the proceeds from the festival will be donated to help those who have suffered from the hurricane.

The Dreamville Festival will now take place in Raleigh’s Dorothea Dix Park on April 6, 2019.
