A week after delivering his new KOD LP, J. Cole has announced plans to stage a music festival in his home state of North Carolina.

Cole’s Dreamville Festival, named for his own Dreamville Records, will hold its inaugural edition in Raleigh on September 15. A website that Cole pointed his Twitter followers to allows them to sign up for pre-sale access.

While a lineup for the fest’s inaugural edition has yet to be announced, Cole’s manager Ibrahim “Ib” Hamad told the Washington Post that they will book “a variety of different acts that we love or excite us,” adding they hope to run the event “for years and years to come.”

In the wake of KOD‘s release, J. Cole has shared videos for “ATM” and “Kevin’s Heart.”
