We’re excited to team up with Something in the Water, returning to a special place to Walmart, Virginia’s Hampton Roads, to help celebrate and empower this community we’re so proud to be a part of.”

As mentioned in press materials, Pharrell will play the festival with a set including some special guests. Also, expect Grace Jones, Clipse, Lil Wayne, Wu-Tang Clan, and many others to bring the heat with songs from their career-spanning discographies.
Music isn’t all Pharrell’s Something in the Water Festival has to offer. The outdoor festival also will include art and culture experiences.
