Security Measures You Should Know For Movin’ On 2019

Like many, you may be anxiously awaiting the annual Movin’ On music festival, which will feature Bryce Vine, Snakehips, A$AP Ferg, and Grouplove this year. If you’re going to the festival on Friday, you should keep in mind the following event policies — both new and longstanding.

Definitely don’t take a break from studying for finals with an ill-advised boozy milkshake at the IM fields. Movin’ On announced some new security measures for the music festival in February. Only empty and reusable bottles will be permitted on concert grounds. All bags larger than 4″ x 6″ x 1″ are prohibited.

Those who attend the event will also be required to show their Penn State or government-issued ID to enter. If you’re under the age of 18, you can still attend Movin’ On with a parent or guardian.

Additionally, concert-goers will now have to enter and exit the IM fields from two specific points. In years past, you could enter the festival grounds from any direction with no security.

Here are some other rules you should be aware of if you’re headed to the IM fields:

  • No laser pointers
  • No video recording equipment or professional cameras
  • No smoking
  • No pets
  • No camping
  • No umbrellas
  • No noisemakers
  • No balls or projectiles

Editor’s note: This story has been edited to clarify the specifics of the new security measures and banned items.
