EVENT DESCRIPTION

After much consideration, in partnership with the City of Virginia Beach, we’ve sadly decided to postpone SOMETHING IN THE WATER 2020.

We will return April 23-25, 2021 as part of our normal annual schedule. All tickets for 2020 will be honored for next year’s festival. Original purchasers must obtain a refund by submitting a request on this website after March 20, 2020. All refund requests must be submitted through this website and no refunds will be processed by contacting Front Gate Tickets via phone or email.

Please use this time to keep building, creating, and progressing. The SITW team certainly will. There are a number of timely community-centric displays of goodwill that we are working hard to ensure still happen this April - things like the planting of a new school garden, public art, SITW Restaurant Week and more.

Recently visionary recording artist, producer, songwriter, philanthropist, fashion designer, and entrepreneur, Pharrell Williams announced the second year of his acclaimed SOMETHING IN THE WATER, a multi-day music festival and cultural experience on the beach in his hometown of Virginia Beach.

Building on the success of 2019’s inaugural SOMETHING IN THE WATER, 2020 will feature expanded programing across an entire week.  In addition to the incredible group of music artists that will be on the beach Friday, April 24th through Sunday, April 26th, Pharrell will expand upon the week by once again bringing the best of what he's seen around the world back to Virginia Beach, including the brightest minds from the culinary world, technology, environmental sustainability, health & wellness, media and more, from Monday, April 20th, through Thursday, April 23rd.

Who’s name was on the private use permit for the beach at the event ? I would like to know as you know, I’m the disabled guy who the 1st precinct police and SWAT beat up and called a terrorist and then removed me from event saying I was trespassing when I had VIP band and ADA band for event and was having a medical situation when this all happened.

I may just dispute the charges on my CC and see what they can do from there. This is getting ridiculous.

Has anyone gotten a refund yet? I thought they were supposed to issue 5/18. On a credit/debit card, that should be processed within two days. Did I miss anything about an additional delay?

You know what would help me get thru this hard time? My refund on my tickets. 😔 I'm sure a lot of people could use that money right now.

Would be nice if you could distribute ticket refunds sooner. Could really use that hard earned money of mine during these times. The guys you run with over at FGT (Front Gate Tickets) have been holding onto my money since I purchased tickets back in October. Why the long wait for something that was paid via phone?

Saw this on GMA this morning VA Standup! #proud

Setting the example and continuously making an positive impact! ❤️

If you Read the Refund Policy it CLEARLY READS "REFUNDS WILL BE PROCESSED WITHIN 30 DAYS OF MAY 18, 2020 CLOSING DATE BY JUNE 18, 2020...SO GIVE IT TIME PEOPLE.

Still trying to figure out why it takes months and months for our refund. This isn’t right.

Love the way you lift up Virginia!

Like everyone else, waiting on my refund. Maybe Front Gate figures if a bunch of us succumb to the virus, they can keep some of that $$$.

Anybody having issues receiving refund from beach pro realty ?

The Ghandi Of Hip Hop🙌🏼

After closing date for refunds and still no word or confirmation. This is ridiculous.

Thank you for your continued support Pharrell Williams 🙏🏾💪🏾♥️

Thank you Pharrell.

Great job🙌🙌🙌

Cool but run me my refund first

may I please have my refund tho???

Distribute refunds first.

Soooooo no one hasn’t revived the refund yet?

Wheres my refund tho?

Except we waited for him in the rain for a while and he only performed like twice🤦‍♀️ Trey songs was a nice surprise though

I've been waiting for my $1,200 refund since March 21st. They've had my money since October 2019. Something in the Water has Something Fishy going on.
