J. Cole's Dreamville Festival is the latest event to be pushed back because of the coronavirus outbreak. The announcement was made earlier today on social media with the caption: "Your safety is our main concern."

"While this decision has been extremely difficult to make, the safety of our fans, artists, and staff is always our top priority, and nothing will ever take precedence over your well-being," Dreamville said in an official statement. "We now encourage everyone to follow the guidelines and various preventive measures put forth by local and national health authorities."

This year's Dreamville Festival will now take place on August 29. The event was originally scheduled for April 4. It will still be held at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina. All those who purchased tickets will be granted access to the new date, while anyone unable to attend will be given a refund.

Dreamville has also stated that the lineup for the event was to be announced this week, but it will now be revealed “as early as next week.”

News of the Dreamville Festival postponement comes as other similar gatherings including Coachella and SXSW have also been postponed or canceled.
