After launching his inaugural festival Something in the Water earlier this year, Pharrell is already thinking about 2020. Today (Oct. 14), Live Nation announced that Skateboard P would bring back his multi-day fest to his hometown of Virginia next year from April 20-26. 

From April 20-23, Pharrell looks to expand the programming of the festival by enlisting some of "the brightest minds from the culinary world, technology, environmental sustainability, health & wellness, media and more," according to a Live Nation press release.   

Then, from April 24 through April 26, Pharrell will enlist some of music's brightest stars to touchdown in his city for another exhilarating showing. 

Last year, Pharrell recruited dozens of stars such as Missy Elliott, J. Balvin, Lil Uzi Vert and Rosalia to take center stage at his debut festival. Jay-Z even made a surprise appearance during Skateboard P's set, where he performed "Izzo." 

An exclusive local pre-sales tickets for the April 24-26 dates will be available Saturday for Virginia residents Oct. 19, from 12 PM EST through 5 PM EST. Tickets can also be purchased in-person at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater or online at Lineup announcements are coming soon.
