Pharell’s Something In The Water Lineup Announcement
After two years of cancellations, Pharrell Williams’ Something In The Water Festival will finally happen. Initially set to take place in his hometown, Virginia Beach, production has moved to the Washington D.C. National Mall from June 17-19.
Pharrell chose this weekend in June so that the festival aligns with the nation’s newest federal holiday, Juneteenth. The three-day weekender boasts an exciting lineup of world-class hip hop, pop, EDM, and R&B artists. Notable names such as 6lack, Ashanti & Ja Rule, Calvin Harris, Chloe x Halle, Lil Baby, Ozuna, Run The Jewels, Tyler, the Creator, and Usher will be taking over the nation’s capital all weekend long. The lineup art also showcases Pharrell & Friends and “some people we can’t announce,” which we look forward to discovering.
Tickets to Something In The Water will be available on Saturday, April 30 at 10 am EST.
Electric Forest Sell Out & Wristband Exchange Announcement
As one of the most sought-after music festivals this year, Electric Forest is officially sold out. Earlier this week, the festival posted on their socials that some limited Electric Forest 2022 camping wristbands were still up for grabs, and after just a few days, all the available options were gone in a flash.
Luckily, festival organizers have revealed the official Wristband Exchange for this year’s production so that festival-goers have a secure platform to buy and sell their tickets for this upcoming edition. Electric Forest 2022 will be in Rothbury, MI, from June 23-26. The wristband exchange program will allow both ticket holders and buyers to purchase and transfer their passes until the festival's last day.
