J. Cole has cancelled this weekend's Dreamville Festival in North Carolina. Posting the news on Twitter, the artist wrote that the cancellation is due to Hurricane Florence, which is currently en route to the Carolinas and is expected to make landfall on Thursday.

Cole added that all tickets will be refunded, but also said the festival might be postponed rather than cancelled completely.

Dreamville also released a statement regarding the cancellation, telling its 127,000 Twitter followers that despite "working tirelessly with officials from the City of Raleigh" and other state and federal officials, expected weather conditions render the area unsafe for "local citizens and festival attendees."

Read the full statement below.

Dreamville Festival was set to take place this Saturday, September 15 in Raleigh. As well as J. Cole, Young Thug, SZA, Big Sean, Teyana Taylor, and others were all set to perform.

Hurricane Florence is currently a category four storm, with winds of around 140mph. President Donald Trump has tweeted that it is "one of the worst storms to hit the East Coast in many years." For more information, head over to the BBC.
