Movin’ On Named One Of Live Nation’s Top College Concerts

Movin’ On impressed everyone when it announced the 2015 lineup out of nowhere via a hype video on its site. The stacked lineup of Passion Pit, Big Sean, Big Gigantic, New Politics, Atmosphere, and Mute Cities made serious waves, and is now being recognized by major outlets.

Live Nation, the largest concert ticket seller in the world, recently named Movin’ On one of “Five College Concerts That Should Be Actual Festivals.” University of Southern California’s Springfest, Yale’s Spring Fling, Sun God at University of California San Diego, and Slope Day at Cornell all made the list as well.

The ranking pointed out why each school’s concert was better than the popular festival Coachella. The answer for Movin’ On is obvious: it’s free, to everyone!

Movin’ On became its own organization in 2010. Before that, it was a part of the Association of Residence Hall Students. After 2010, Movin’ On combined with two other music festivals, “Celebrate Stage” and UPUA’s “Last Stop”, to make one large end of the year music festival.

This year’s concert is the 40th anniversary of the first Movin’ On. If you can hardly wait 16 more days, we compiled a Spotify playlist of the most popular songs from each artist with a few lesser-known tunes in the mix to get you ready.
