J.Cole had to shut down his first ever Dreamville festival in his hometown Fayetteville, North Carolina due to Hurricane Florence. The hurricane is predicted to hit most of the east coast. Experts have predicted when it hits the United States of America it will be a category 4.
J.Cole announced the bad news to Cole World on Twitter.
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. I appreciate everybody that was headed to rock with us. 30,000 + were expected. 🤯🤯
All tickets will be refunded. Bsafe
