Something In The Water Festival 2019

In less than a month, a festival-packed season at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront kicks off with one of the biggest (and most anticipated) events—Something in the Water. Thousands of music lovers are expected to hit the boardwalk from April 28-30.

In anticipation, City staff from public safety, transportation, facilities and Resort Beach operations have been finalizing plans with SITW organizers to ensure the festival runs smoothly. Organizers will share those plans at a community meeting on Thursday, April 6, at the Virginia Beach Convention Center from 6-8 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend, especially neighborhood associations and residents living in or near the Oceanfront, to learn about access, transportation plans, shuttle service, safety concerns and more.

The public will also get a glimpse of what to expect inside the festival. Spoiler alert: There will be additional stages and performers at the Oceanfront this year! A representative from SITW promoter IMGoing will give those details during the meeting.

The City’s Communications Department encourages attendees to sign up for RAVE Alerts to receive updates and emergency notifications sent to their phones during the festival. You can subscribe by texting SITW to 67283.

It is also a good idea to follow the City of Virginia Beach on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for the most up-to-date information about SITW and other upcoming events this season.
