“In just a few short years, J. Cole has made Dreamville Festival one of the preeminent hip-hop moments of the year, hosting performances from the hottest emerging artists and established talent,” said Tim Hinshaw, Head of of hip-hop. Hop and R&B for Amazon Music.
Hinshaw adds, “We at Rotation have worked to make Amazon Music the home of these types of activations and I look forward to bringing Dreamville Festival into the homes of Hip Hop and R&B fans everywhere.”

“We have established the Dreamville Festival as one of the premier Hip Hop events in the country; bringing together all aspects of the Dreamville brand,” says Candace Rodney, President of Dreamville Studios & Records.
Rodney continues, “This year we’ve cut the festival down to two days and curated a selection of some of Dreamville’s closest collaborators. It’s always been a goal to make Dreamville Fest accessible to fans around the world, and the partnership with Amazon Music has made that a reality.
