During 2022’s Mighty Dream Forum today, Pharrell Williams made a special announcement among Virginia Beach city officials that his Something In The Water music festival will return to Virginia Beach.
2020’s Something In The Water festival was postponed due to the COVID pandemic. And this past year in 2021, the controversial police coverup of the homicide of Donovon Lynch, the cousin of Pharrell Williams, led the music festival founder to leave Virginia Beach, Virginia, and move the event to Washington D.C.
It appears wounds have now healed. Pharrell and Virginia Beach city officials have decided to work together again and bring the festival back to Virginia Beach. Tickets for the Something In The Water 2023 will go on sale Saturday November 5, 2022, and priority VIP access will be for 757 residents only. The 3-day event will run April 28–30, 2023. Virginia locals can get tickets at a special “locals only” event at the Virginia Beach amphitheater on November 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The festival has been known to include not only music but the brightest minds from the culinary world, technology, environmental sustainability, health and wellness, media, and more.
Full line up and details to be announced soon. 3-Day passes will be on sale at www.somethinginthewater.com on November 5, 2022, at 12PM ET. Something In The Water is produced by Live Nation and IMGoing.
