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 will also include 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 and more.

Festival-goers can add Diddy and Snoop Dogg to the list of musicians they’ll see at the Something in the Water festival late next month.

Usher and Gwen Stefani have also been added to the list. This thing is going to be one of the biggest music events in the history of Virginia Beach. The excitement is definitely building… rapidly!

“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 makes sense—the people of Virginia are one-of-a-kind: uniquely gritty, bold, and brilliant,” Williams says in a press release. “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, which will see 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.

WHAT’S NEW

Tuesday April 23rd, 2019

I know it’s a shot in the dark but I thought I’d give it a go since you’re a VB local with a career in music. Our charter bus for Larkspur Middle cancelled for THIS Friday and we can’t find another for our Chorus Competition trip to NY. We’ve been calling for days and the best we could find is one for $2k which is outside our budget. Could you help a school out with any hookups so these kids will not have to cancel the trip they’ve been looking forward to? ... See MoreSee Less

Lol..not around Va Beach; maybe at the beach

TWO 3-DAY GENERAL ADMISSION WRISTBANDS FOR SALE NEED THESE OFF ME ASAP!!!

Selling one GA wristband-unregistered- $200

They will not be able to ride a bike with the foot traffic.im a local live at the oceanfront and have to walk to work

I have two 3 day general admission tickets for sale $225 each

This weekend will make history ❤️

Are there any LYFT, SEGWAYs available to rent?! That would be so legit for this event!

Where do you recommend locking bikes up? Are there gonna be bike racks available? Is the city gonna be ok with thousands of bikes locked up on the boardwalk railing?

Anyone have a room share or selling a room?

UBER and LYFT drivers are not getting the proper information on THE SOMETHING IN THE WATER event this weekend. Neither the City or the Event planners are providing any information for us we need to make this work. All we know is there is a drop off spot for the event at 5th St Stage at the Convention Center. There is no mention if we have riders that say need to get to say the Cavalier or say Shuckers or other locations north of 22nd. This is very confusing for us and we would like to make this work without having to inconvenience our riders. Could we get a push from the planners to get with the CITY to clarify where we will be allowed and where we will not.

Selling 2 - GA 4 day unregistered wristbands! Message me for details!
