‘Something In The Water’ is returning to the 757!

Pharrell is making waves with his announcement that acclaimed music and art festival ‘Something In The Water‘ is returning to his hometown of Virginia Beach from April 28-April 30, 2023.

“The demand for the festival in Virginia Beach and The 757 – among the people – has never wavered. If anything it has only intensified,” said Williams while speaking at his Mighty Dream Forum.

“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.”

Williams made the announcement while joined onstage by Mayor Bobby Dyer, Council Member Aaron Rouse, City Manager Patrick Duhaney, and Deputy City Manager Taylor Adams who applauded the festival’s mission to unite communities, celebrate diversity, and empower everyone from the youth to small business owners.

“It is exciting to be so close to the return of ‘Something In The Water’ in Virginia Beach,” said Mayor Bobby Dyer. “We sincerely appreciate Mr. Williams and his willingness to bring this marquee event back home!”
