A$AP Rocky To Headline Movin’ On 2014

The lineup for Penn State’s free end-of-the-year music festival was announced this afternoon at a reveal ceremony in the HUB. Harlem-based rapper A$AP Rocky will headline the 40th Movin On’ on April 26. Known for hits like “Fuckin’ Problems,” “Wild for the Night,” and “Goldie,” he has collaborated with the likes of Drake, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, and Skrillex.

Movin’ On’s CORE Committee also announced the supporting acts for the concert which include indie band Fitz and the Tantrums, singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc, and fellow singer/songwriter Sky Ferreira. Aloe Blacc has scored recent hits in “The Man” as well as being featured on Avicii’s summer-hit “Wake Me Up”. Fitz and the Tantrums are lesser-known, but have had hits in “The Walker” and “Moneygrabber” while Sky Ferreira is a relative unknown with songs like “You’re Not the One” and “Everything is Embarrassing.”

The music festival will take place on April 26, a week earlier than usual, and will also move to the IM fields outside of the law building instead of the fields next to Beaver Stadium.
