Pharrell Williams unveils the official lineup for this years’ Something in the Water festival, slated to take place in Washington, D.C. for a three-day event, June 17-19.
SITW returns to celebrate art, culture and music with an array of performances from the likes of 6LACK, Ashanti & Ja Rule, Blxst, Calvin Harris, Chloe x Halle, Dave Matthews Band, Davido, Jon Batiste, Lucky Daye, Lil Uzi Vert, Mariah The Scientist, Skepta, Tierra Whack, Tyler, The Creator, and Usher to name a few.
The festival will play host to some of the biggest names in music during Juneteenth weekend, situated in the heart of the nation’s capital.
Beyond the music, SITW is staying true to its community-centered approach in amplifying Black voices. The urgency in Pharrell’s pledge to recognize Juneteenth as a paid holiday was instrumental in galvanizing elected officials into action. And this year, with an emphasis on celebrating diversity, SITW has upped the ante with a well-curated lineup that deals in Hip-hop, R&B, Pop, Afrobeats and more.
Launched in Virginia Beach, VA in 2019, Something in the Water aims to shine a light on going the extra mile for change. With a unique blend of activations and initiatives in place for Juneteenth weekend, something special is definitely in the works.
Three-day passes for the festival go on sale to the general public starting Saturday, April 30 at 10:00 a.m. local time on the SITW website, with Virginia residents having access to a “Virginia Locals Only” presale option this Friday, April 29.
If you’re one of the lucky few who purchased passes for previous years, you’re welcomed to an exclusive presale for the 2022 festival on Wednesday, April 27 from 10:00 a.m. ET until Thursday, April 28 at 10 p.m. ET.
