Is Movin’ On for Penn State students only?
Movin’ On was created as a student-focused activity for Penn State students and those graduating and “movin’ on” in their lives. Students are welcome to bring friends, family, and guests to Movin’ On so long as they are ages 18 or older. All alcohol and drug laws will be strictly enforced by security and Police services.
How is this “Penn State students, 18+ only” rule going to be enforced?
Movin’ On will not be checking IDs at the festival. Students are welcome to bring friends, family, and guests to Movin’ On so long as they are ages 18 or older. All alcohol and drug laws will be strictly enforced by security and Police services.
Why is Movin’ On for people ages 18+?
Movin’ On feels that the environment of the festival is more appropriate, safe, and hospitable for those aged 18 years or older. To be reflective, Movin’ On has traditionally been an ages 18+ show. This year, the Executive Committee chose to take a more active approach in our marketing towards this effort, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our concert attendees.
How is Penn State going to make sure attendees are safe?
Penn State takes the safety and security of its students, faculty and staff very seriously. The safety and wellbeing of visitors to our campus is also extremely important. Penn State University Campus Police, along with a team of auxiliary police will be on site at the Movin' On Music Festival. Security cameras will be installed at various points in the concert area of Lot 12 (Blue Band Field) and a first-aid tent fully staffed with EMS personnel and stand-by ambulance service are also planned for the duration of the festival. All alcohol and drug laws will be strictly enforced by security and Police services.
Can Alumni attend Movin’ On?
Yes. As a Penn State tradition, alumni are welcome to attend.
Can students from other Universities attend Movin’ On?
Yes. However, we ask that students from other Universities attend with a Penn State student.
Can my family members attend Movin’ On?
Family members that are ages 18+ are welcome to attend.
Where can I buy tickets?
Movin’ On is a ticketless event; if you are 18 years or older simply show up to the field and enjoy the show.
How is Movin’ On funded?
Movin’ On is funded entirely through University resources. The majority of funds comes from the University Park Student Activity Fee that is paid by current Penn State students. Additional support is given by sponsors and collaborating student organizations.
Will the event happen if it rains? Is there a rain date?
Movin' On will happen rain or shine! However, in the event of extreme inclement weather, the start of Movin' On will be delayed and/or canceled.
