Something in the Water Day 3: Revived by the Music


As the third day of Pharrell Williams‘ Something in the Water festival closed on Sunday, June 19, the problems that plagued the three-day festival persisted.

Mother Nature continued to give attendees glorious weather but crowd congestion, performance delays, and navigating the cramped space were recurring issue. The overcrowding on Saturday night that caused the D.C. Fire Marshal to close down entry to all attendees outside the festival perimeter prior to Williams’ headlining set was avoided as the festival alerted concertgoers that all entry and reentry would end at 10:30 p.m. (When Something in the Water tweeted on Sunday afternoon “Who are you most excited to see today?” one person replied “The inside of the festival that we paid for.”) 

The bottleneck design at each stage continued to be a problem but once again, the performers saved the day. 

Post Malone, a last-minute addition announced Saturday, did a brief 30-minute set on the Moon Stage in the late afternoon. People wondered why his set was so early and so brief but he was later spotted hanging out at the Garbage/Tears for Fears concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion that night. Even artists fanboy over other artists.
