Pharrell’s Something in the Water Festival is making a return this year. The super producer has announced the details for his star-studded festival, which will take place June 17-June 19 in Washington, D.C.

The three-day festival will feature performances by R&B acts such as Usher, Ashanti (with Ja Rule), 6LACK, Chloe x Halle, Jon Batiste, Lucky Daye, Mariah the Scientist, Sabrina Claudio, Snoh Aalegra, Syd, Teyana Taylor and many more.

Pharrell will also hit the stage with some special guests who have not been announced yet. Of course, it wouldn’t be a D.C.-hosted music festival without featuring go-go bands such as Backyard Band and Rare Essence

Pharrell shared the significance behind his festival in a statement. “SOMETHING IN THE WATER is a Black solution (LOVE) for a systemic issue, and this year we are taking our celebration to a higher platform – the nation’s Capital during Juneteenth Weekend,” he said. “We want to show the world that there is SOMETHING IN THE WATER across the whole DMV and I want to continue to bring awareness to the greatness within these communities and invite large corporations to show up for the people.”

Muriel Bowser, Mayor of D.C., added, “If you’re celebrating music, if you’re celebrating Black excellence, if you’re drawing attention to the people who have dedicated their lives to knocking down barriers and uplifting our communities — then there is no better place to do that than in Washington, D.C. We are proud to be working with Pharrell to bring SOMETHING IN THE WATER to D.C. for Juneteenth weekend. D.C. is open and we are ready to celebrate.”

Three-day passes will go on sale to the general public beginning Saturday, April 30, at 10 a.m. local time on somethinginthewater.com.

Pharrell launched his Something in the Water Festival in 2019 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
