Movin’ On Releases First 2015 Survey

Movin' On 2012

Movin’ On released its student survey for its 2015 concert yesterday, including major acts from a handful of genres.

Giving students the option of selecting as many artists as they like from a list of 18 possible acts and the ability to write in their own, the survey is used to craft Movin’ On’s artist selection for the concert in the spring. This year, the committee is only releasing one survey, unlike in year’s past when a second survey was used to narrow the list of potential artists. This year’s survey will be open until the end of September and includes major acts like Chance The Rapper, Schoolboy Q, and The Naked and Famous, among others.

Although an act may appear on  the survey, it should be said that it’s highly unlikely they actually play at Movin’ On. In the previous two years, only one act was featured in either survey and ended up playing the concert, with Fitz and the Tantrums playing last year and MGMT playing in 2013.

Last year saw A$AP Rocky canceling two days prior to the concert, with students instead packing the fields for last-minute replacement Wiz Khalifa’s set. Although the cancellation of A$AP Rocky was a surprise to say the least, Wiz Khalifa’s popularity was a step up from headliners of years past. Hopefully, we see continued success this year.
