J. Cole’s 2023 Dreamville Festival schedule has been revealed. On Sunday, April 2, Drake and J. Cole will perform as the headliner. On April 1, Usher will perform as the featured act. On Sunday, Burna Boy will also give a main performance.

Outside of the hosts, the lineup is loaded with stars from rap, R&B, and other genres. The standout performers from Saturday’s performance included Lil Durk, Ari Lennox, City Girls, Sean Paul, Earthgang, and Key Glock; Sunday’s show also featured Burna Boy, Summer Walker, J.I.D., GloRilla, Waka Flocka Flame, and Baby Tate.

The two hip-hop legends, who are regarded as the cornerstones of the 2010s rap period, will perform together for the first time as the headliners of a concert at Dreamville Fest. Cole’s 2010 Friday Night Lights hit “In the Morning” served as the foundation of their first partnership. Drake and Cole collaborated once more in 2013 on the boastful song “Jodeci Freestyle.” A medley of songs from their renowned catalogues will be performed, according to a press statement from Dreamville.
