Dreamville Festival 2023 takes over Raleigh, NC this weekend. If you missed out on tickets you can livestream the festival through Amazon Music.

Dreamville Festival returns to Dorothea Dix park in Raleigh, NC, this weekend and tickets for the two-day festival went fast. Fortunately for fans who missed out, they can enjoy the festival from the comfort of their own home.

Dreamville and its head honcho, J.Cole, announced fans will get to view acts through streaming services. According to Revolt, Dreamville has teamed back up with Rotation, the global hip-hop and R&B brand from Amazon Music.

Rotation will provide an exclusive livestream of the artists’ sets on both festival days, April 1 and April 2. The livestreams will start at 2 p.m. ET on Amazon Music’s channel on Twitch and Prime Video. Tim Hinshaw, head of hip hop and R&B for Amazon Music, was happy to rejoin forces with the festival team.

“Dreamville Festival has made itself one of the biggest hip hop moments of the year, and after last year’s incredible performances, we at Rotation knew we needed to stream the festival for fans around the world a second year running,” Hinshaw said.

At-home viewers will also get the “backstage experience” with artist interviews and commentary in real-time. Revolt stated that throughout the day, music journalist and “Rotation Roundtable” host Rob Markman, “R&B Rotation in DJ Mode” host Gia Peppers, and hip hop industry veteran, Wayno, will serve as the livestream’s official hosts.

All ticket packages are currently sold out, which may be partly due to the festival’s killer lineup.

Along with the entire Dreamville roster, fans will see Drake, Usher, and Burna Boy as co-headliners, and other acts, including Summer Walker, City Girls, Waka Flocka Flame, Key Glock, Jessie Reyez, GloRilla and more.
