Dreamville Festival will be the first event of its kind for the region as it looks to provide a thoughtfully-curated, multi-stage music event from J. Cole, who himself was raised in nearby Fayetteville, North Carolina. The festival offers an opportunity for J. Cole to give back to his home state that has helped shape the artist he has become with a one-of-a-kind celebration of local culture, food and art that also features a curated selection of music performers blending together some of today’s biggest national acts with exciting up-and-comers.
The festivals itself aims to provide a unique opportunity for locals and traveling visitors alike to gather and enjoy a music celebration in one of Raleigh’s most beautiful and historic locations, Dorothea Dix Park – Raleigh’s largest city park with over 300 acres of public greenspace. Dreamville Festival’s ultimate goal is to not only have a positive and substantial economic and cultural impact on the city itself and the surrounding region, but also to become one of the most anticipated annual events in the city – one that is a perfect complement to the existing event landscape and cultural fabric of the City of Raleigh.
Nashbash is Downtown Raleigh’s newest block party. On October 7th, we’re letting local artists, makers, and musicians take over Martin Street. Whiskey Kitchen will be cooking up food on our patio AND in the street. Terrapin Beer Co. and Elijah Craig and Live Life Live will be there, all to raise money for Nextstepraleigh, The Foundation of Hope and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
Ride your bike and Oaks and Spokes will watch it while you party with a cause. Attendence is free to all at Nash Bash. Please come let us show you our favorite corner of Raleigh and help these causes fight the good fight.
Local chef's will be in the NextStep dunk booth, and Kooley High takes the stage at 8 p.m.
