VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Pharrell Williams tweeted a video that announced the line up for his Something in the Water festival, scheduled April 26 to April 28 in Virginia Beach.

The performances would be held at both the Oceanfront stages and at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.

The full line up of 30 artists is as listed:

In addition to the concert, the multi-venue festival will feature sports activities and panel discussions with thought leaders and forward-thinking brands.

Williams, a Virginia Beach native, first proposed the idea for the festival last fall. City officials hoped the festival would lead to a new start for the weekend which was marred last year when three people were shot.

“I think it’s the real answer with culturally-relevant solutions for a weekend that’s had some problems,” Virginia Beach City Councilman David Nygaard said.
