Pharrell's friends include Diddy, Missy Elliott, Usher, Gwen Stefani, and Snoop Dogg.

"Something in the Water" is supposed to mirror the huge music festival out west, SXSW.

In a Twitter video, Pharrell announced the 'Something in the Water' festival lineup which included Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Jaden Smith, Jhene Aiko, Kaytranada, Maggie Rogers, Migos, Diplo, Deepak Chopra, Radiant Children, Dram, Missy Elliot, Mac DeMarco, Geoffrey Canada, Trap Karaoke, Ferg, SZA, Pusha T, Kaws, Masego, John-Robert, J Balvin, Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals, Pharrell and Friends, Janelle Monae, Virgil Abloh, Pop Up Church Service, Leikeli47, Rosalia, and the Dave Matthews Band. 

Tickets for the event on April 26 through 28 went on sale at noon Friday, March 8, with early bird three-day general admission starting at $150. 

Within half an hour, the early bird tickets and the $500 VIP tickets sold out. 

"I knew that it was going to sell out fast just because everyone talking about it," said Makayla Altgilbers.

Some said they wish one-day tickets were available, rather than the three-day ones. 

"Because it's such a wide variety of artists, you might like, have no interest in the other two days and like, all interest in one day and it seems like a waste to spend $150 dollars on three days and only go once," said Marcella Burmeister.

The event at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront will also include a pop-up church service, karaoke featuring trap music as well as moments with wellness expert Deepak Chopra and Geoffrey Canada, the president of the Harlem Children's Zone whose work has transformed the lives of thousands of inner-city youth.
