Virginia Beach native Pharrell Williams announced Monday that he’s putting on his very own music festival in his hometown next month. The first-ever “Something in the Water Fest” will feature sets by famous Virginians Missy Elliott and Dave Matthews Band (just to start).

“Virginia has been home to some of the most gifted artists, athletes and scientists to ever live,” Pharrell said in a statement. And it makes sense–the people of Virginia are one-of-a-kind: uniquely gritty, bold, and brilliant.”
Also on the bill are Migos, SZA, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Jhene Aiko, Jaden Smith, Mac Demarco, Anderson .Paak, Diplo, Pharrell’s protege Maggie Rogers, and even spiritual guru Deepak Chopra.
Apparently, thats not all. The fest will also feature a “pop-up church service karaoke featuring trap music.” The Something in the Water festival will take place April 26-28 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center and tickets go on sale March 8.
