If you can’t fly to the nation’s capital for the weekend-long event, you can still enjoy the festival at home. Amazon Prime will stream the entire festival starting at 3 p.m. ET from June 17 to 19 on the Amazon Prime app and on the platform’s Twitch Channel.
“Amazon Music always has the most innovative programming and I’m thrilled they have come onboard to livestream Something in theWater,” said Williams in a statement. “By livestreaming they are helping give access to so many people who can’t travel to DC Juneteenth weekend.”
Williams pulled SITW from his hometown of Virginia Beach, Va., last year after launching it in 2019 citing what he called a “toxic” environment in the city.The inaugural SITW featured sets from A$AP Rocky, Beck, Chance the Rapper, Foo Fighters and more; the 2020 and 2021 events were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
