Pharrell Williams‘ Something In The Water Festival is returning to Virginia Beach next year after it moved to Washington, D.C. in 2021 in protest against the killing of his cousin by Virginia Beach police.
The three-day music festival, art and cultural experience will kick off in Pharrell’s hometown on April 28, 2023.
“The demand for the festival in Virginia Beach and The 757 – among the people – has never wavered. If anything it has only intensified,” Williams said. “College Beach Weekend continues every year and the city of Virginia Beach leaders have been eager to reconcile and move forward. The environment is finally optimized for return and the announcement will delight everyone – from HBCU students across the eastern USA to the hundreds of small businesses who will play a role in the festival to the cities within the region and neighborhoods that will serve as hosts.”
“I need to come back home. There is a pervasive feeling by almost everyone that the festival belongs in Virginia Beach, and the time is right to bring it back,” he added.
The lineup for 2023 Something In The Water Festival will be announced later.
Ticket sales will begin on November 5 at 12 PM ET. The “VA Locals Only Sale” for Virginia residents will start at 10 AM the same day.
