J. Cole, whose Dreamville Takeover showcase was one of the most popular events at last year’s South by Southwest Music Festival will return to Austin on the first day of this year’s SXSW Interactive Festival as the musical guest at a high dollar fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee, the event’s organizer announced today on Twitter.

As the fundraiser takes place on March 11, four days before the music fest starts, there’s no guarantee he’ll perform at the festival. However, like Fetty Wap, there’s a very good chance we’ll see his name on the roster for a private party during SXSW Interactive.
Worth noting, Bas, one of the artists on Cole’s Dreamville Records label who played last year’s show, is already booked at the fest. If there is to be a Takeover Pt. 2, keep an eye on his gigs.
