EVENT DESCRIPTION

Musician and producer Pharrell Williams has announced a brand new multi-day festival offering in his hometown of Virginia Beach for this spring, when he will enlist the likes of Dave Matthews Band, Janelle Monáe, Missy Elliott, Travis Scott, Diplo and more to celebrate the culture of Virginia.

The three-day gathering’s inaugural event included music from Migos, Mac DeMarco, SZA, Anderson, Paak & The Free Nationals, Pusha T, J Balvin, Lil Uzi Vert, Rosalía, Kaws, Maggie Rogers, Ferg, Jaden Smith, Masego, Usher, Gwen Stefani, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Diddy, and even Jay Z and Beyonce took the stage with Pharrell and Friends. It was a weekend of fun and music like no other.

“Allen Iverson. Missy Elliott. Dave Matthews Band. Ella Fitzgerald. Virginia has been home to some of the most gifted artists, athletes, and scientists to ever live. And it made sense—the people of Virginia are one-of-a-kind: uniquely gritty, bold, and brilliant,” said Williams. “For the first time, we are harnessing that energy, bringing the great minds of our time and the biggest brands in the world to this great place, and letting the inspiration flow and well deserved opportunities unfold. Virginia needs this right now and the world will see what we Virginians have known all along: there really is “Something in the Water.”

The weekend, showcased Williams working with the Virginia Beach community to give back to his hometown, will also include screenings of Ava Duvernay’s Array and Samuel “Blitz” Bazawule’s upcoming Netflix movie The Burial of Kojo, plus a pop-up church, Trap Karaoke and more.

My condolences to those who have lost. I have to say though, Every Week 17 there is a shooting at the oceanfront. and yes there were two shootings at the ocean front on the weekend of something in the water (Hidden in the news on how successful it was) . Again my condolences to those who have lost.

Thank you

Thank you! ❤️

Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. Our tears is watering our seeds of STRENGTH!

SOMETHING IN THE WATER is more than a music festival—it's a community festival. 🌊
This year we partnered with Virginia Natural Gas and Timberland to expand the Community Garden at the Seatack Elementary School An Achievable Dream Academy. Amazing to see all the growth and the effort put into the garden from these amazing students.

Wow, very very nice, boy just look at the future leaders of America. thanks , I am very proud of them! Praise God... very productive and fun

Was definitely one of the best projects we have worked on. So glad that me and the Visionscapes team were able to have a hand in it. Impressed with the growth of the garden in such short time.

This makes my ❤️ so happy!

Should be in more schools not just low income schools...

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
