As a result of the impending Hurricane Florence, J. Cole has to cancel his first Dreamville Festival, which was set to take place in Raleigh, N.C., according to Rolling Stone. “Due to safety concerns regarding dangerous weather, we are extremely saddened to announce today that the inaugural Dreamville Festival 2018 is being canceled,” the festival’s organizers said and continued, “Our team has been working tirelessly with officials from the City of Raleigh, along with our State and Federal Partners, among others, to monitor the potential negative impact of Hurricane Florence. With the current weather-related information at hand, we have together decided to cancel this year’s event for the ultimate safety of both the local citizens and festival attendees.”

The rapper took to Twitter to comment on the festival’s impending cancellation, with the intentions to reschedule it. “Mannn. Due to this Hurricane heading to NC, we have to cancel Dreamville Festival,” J. Cole tweeted. “We’re working to get another date, but right now safety is most important.
