As one of the top 5 largest student-run music festivals in the country, and a Penn State tradition now in its 42nd year, Movin' On brings a free celebration intended to wish off all graduating students who are "movin' on" in their lives.
Since its inception in 1975, Movin' On has remained true to its roots by providing a fun-filled day of diverse music, exciting events, and community involvement. As a 18+ student only show, Movin’ On has remained a substance-free environment at no charge to Penn State students.
In the fall of 2010, Movin’ On was born through collaboration with four other other campus organizations. UPUA, GPSA, ARHS, and SPA held their own concerts in the springtime, but the students wanted one big show instead of four small scale events. With the help of UPAC (University Park Allocation Committee) Movin’ On is funded through the Penn State student activity fee, and has combined forces with these other organizations to create one big festival.
Movin' On's rich history includes a wide variety of musical acts including Fall Out Boy, Gym Class Heroes, Run DMC, Jimmy Eat World, Bowling for Soup, Lupe Fiasco, O.A.R., Ludacris, MGMT, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Passion Pit, and more.
