Passes On Sale Now!

In a statement made from his MIGHTY DREAM FORUM, visionary recording artist, producer, songwriter, philanthropist, fashion designer, and entrepreneur, Pharrell Williams announced the return of his acclaimed SOMETHING IN THE WATER, a multi-day music festival, art and cultural experience, to his hometown of Virginia Beach from April 28-April 30, 2023. Joined onstage by Mayor Bobby Dyer, Council Member Aaron Rouse, City Manager Patrick Duhaney and Deputy City Manager Taylor Adams for the announcement, SOMETHING IN THE WATER will continue its mission to unite communities, celebrate diversity and empower everyone from the youth to small business owners. 
“The demand for the festival in Virginia Beach and The 757 - among the people - has never wavered. If anything it has only intensified,” says Pharrell Williams. “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.”
