Independence Avenue in Washington, D.C. will be a bit busy next week. For the first time, Pharrell will bring his Something In The Water festival to the nation’s capital. During his three-day stay in Chocolate City, the legendary producer will be joined by Justin Timberlake, SZA, Lil’ Uzi Vert, Lil’ Baby and many other to artists. Not to mention, Pusha T will link up with Malice for a Clipse reunion while Teyana Taylor delivers what could be her last performance in Washington, D.C.
As expected, tickets have been flying out of the virtual box office in anticipation of this major event. Now, it appears that there will be a few more fans in attendance during the weekend of Juneteenth. Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has announced that all public and charter high school graduates will be granted free admission to the festival.
“We are excited to take part in celebrations with families across the District to recognize the accomplishments of the graduating class of 2022,” Bowser reportedly wrote in a letter to parents of high school graduates.
DCist reports that each graduate will receive one free non-transferrable pass to Something In The Water. To take advantage of the offer, students should refer to instructions provided by Bowser and Chancellor Lewis Ferebee. The offer will be available to students with their school ID through June 16, 2022.
“As the end of your senior year approaches, it is important that you know that all of DC is proud of you. You have reached an important milestone in your life, and you have done it during tough times,” Bowser added.
The festival will begin on June 17, 2022 and run through the weekend. Check out the complete lineup below.
