Pharrell’s inaugural Something In The Water Festival had a rough day on Friday as the festival was forced to cancel its opening day before it even began as heavy rain, winds and lighting made for especially dangerous conditions. That all changed on Saturday as the sun came out and an amazing lineup of artists blessed the stage to put on a show that Virginia Beach would not soon forget.

With performances from Travis Scott, SZA, ASAP Ferg and a huge set from Pharrell with guest appearances by Jay Z, Diddy, Tyler The Creator, Usher, Missy Elliott and Snoop Dogg (to name a few), Something In The Water made up for Friday’s rain cancellation and then some!

Check out our photos from Saturday’s lineup at Something In The Water below.
