movin on 2012

Are you a student musician? Looking to make it big? Well, here’s your chance to play in front of thousands of people and open for MGMT at Movin’ On!

In case you don’t already know, Movin’ On is Penn State’s annual end-of-year concert, sponsored by student groups such as the University Park Undergraduate Association, Graduate Student Association, Student Programming Association, Association of Residence Hall Students, The Lion FM, and various local businesses.

Movin’ On is hosting a Battle of the Bands to choose Penn State student bands to play at this year’s concert, which will be held in the field next to Beaver Stadium. Last year’s winners were ska band The Wondershop Showdown and electro-house producer Keegan Tawa. This year’s Battle of the Bands will be held on March 23.

To apply for the Battle, go to the Movin’ On website and fill out the application by February 28. You must send a music sample, as well as some basic info about your band. At least one band member must be a Penn State student.

This may be your best chance for your small jam band to play for a huge crowd, so don’t miss out! Bring the best of Penn State Student music to Movin’ On!
