Pharrell Williams has shared the lineup for his ‘2023 Something in the Water Fest’, featuring Lil Wayne, Mumford & Sons, Grace Jones, Skrillex and Lil Uzi Vert and more.  Pharrell posted on social media: 🌊 See you in Virginia Beach for SOMETHING IN THE WATER presented by @walmart April 28-30!

Other artists performing at the three-day event, taking place from April 28-30 in Virginia Beach, are Jazmine Sullivan, Maren Morris, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Clipse, Wu-Tang Clan, Kid Cudi, Latto, Lil Durk, Summer Walker, Lil Yachty, Machine Gun Kelly and Coi Leray.  Pharrell will also bring out special guests who are billed as “Pharrell’s Phriends,” and this year’s event will also include a pop-up church service.

Pharrell launched Something in the Water in 2009. Last year’s festival moved from Virginia Beach to Washington, D.C., after Pharrell called Virginia Beach “toxic” and said he wished the city took a more proactive stance after a police officer fatally shot his cousin Donovon Lynch in March 2021.

Tickets are currently on sale now, and the entire festival will also be live-streamed on YouTube.  For more information, head to:
