Movin’ On, Penn State’s annual outdoor music festival, announced today that it will push the date of its 2014 concert up one week from Friday, May 2, 2014 to Saturday, April 26, and change its location to the IM fields next to the law building.
According to Movin’ On, the date and location need to be changed because its usual location — the IM fields next to Jeffrey Field — is being paved to accomodate for the high demand in parking for the Penn State hockey team. Movin’ On would also conflict with the Jason Aldean/Florida Georgia Line concert that will be held at the Bryce Jordan Center if it were held on its original date.
The event is traditionally held on the Friday before the spring semester’s finals week, which conflicts with another Penn State tradition, Frat Formal Friday. That fact is always brought up in Movin’ On’s student activity fee allocation request meetings as a determent. However, this now moves the concert to a less hectic weekend when members of Greek life will be able to attend.
Movin’ On is a free concert that has long been one of the premier shows held at Penn State every year. Past acts have included major names like OAR, Lupe Fiasco, Brand New, MGMT, and Ludacris. While none of the 2014 acts have been announced yet, they should come out within the next few weeks.
