VIRGINIA BEACH -- Call it a homecoming of sorts.

Virginia Beach's own Pharrell Williams, the Grammy Award winning musician/entrepreneur, will headline WNVZ Z104’s 4th Annual ShaggFest .  It's June 7 at Farm Bureau Live at Virginia Beach.

Brandon “Shaggy” Stokes, music director/morning show host for Z104 said in making the announcement Friday morning, “Pharrell and I go way back and I can’t be happier to have my friend perform at our 2014 ShaggFest.  Z104 is the perfect station to welcome Pharrell back home.”

Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” are just two of Pharrells recent mega collaborations. His current album GIRL featuring his hit single “HAPPY” is currently # 1 in the country.

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 21 at the Ford box office at the amphitheater, through Ticketmaster, charge by phone 800-745-3000 or go to the Live Nation Web site.

As a side note, a Facebook page has been created to make Pharrell's song "Happy" the official state song of Virginia.
