Your Guide To Movin’ On 2022

The last week of classes is coming to a close. That means tomorrow, April 29, students will head to the IM Fields for one last campus-wide music festival to celebrate the end of the semester.

Movin’ On will return to the IM Fields for the first time since 2019. Most students have never experienced the annual end-of-year music festival, and for seniors, this is only their second (and last) opportunity to witness it in person. That said, we could all use a little refresher or insight on what exactly Movin’ On entails.

The Basics

Movin’ On will take place on the IM Fields, which are right across from East Halls on the northeast end of campus. The flashing lights, bumping bass, and beautiful tunes will most likely guide you there. The gates will open at 3:30 p.m., with the concert concluding at 10:30 p.m.

The concert is open to all, but those 18 and under must be accompanied by a guardian. Attendees must have their student IDs or government-issued IDs to get into the festival. Only clear totes (12″ x 12″ x 6″), plastic zip-top bags (11″ x 11″ x 0″), and wallets or clutches (6.5″ x 4.5″) are allowed in. Bags like backpacks, large totes, and fanny packs aren’t permitted.

Students are also allowed to bring an empty reusable water bottle to use at the refillable water bottle stations. Most importantly, though, admission is free thanks to Penn State’s student-initiated fee.

Parking

Parking will be available for $10 in the Curtin Road Stadium West parking lot. You can also park for $1 per hour in the East Parking Deck. Prepaid parking won’t be available.

The Lineup

Women’s National Hockey League

Women’s National Hockey League will kick things off for the musical festival. The “post-mom rock” group earned its spot by winning Movin’ On’s annual Battle of the Bands.

The Aces

Following the Women’s National Hockey League, The Aces will take the stage. The Provo, Utah-based band is best known for songs like “Daydream” and “Waiting for You”.

Movin’ On announced the alternative pop band as a surprise addition to the lineup earlier this month. The Aces will stop in Happy Valley before heading out on tour in support of fellow alternative pop band “Why Don’t We?” in June.

Fitz & The Tantrums

An indie-pop band based in Los Angeles, Fitz & The Tantrums is best known for songs like “Handclap” and “Out Of My League.” Fitz & The Tantrums’ album, “MORE THAN JUST A DREAM”, put the group on the charts. To this date, the band’s monthly listeners have shot up to an impressive 6.9 million on Spotify.

Aminé

Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Aminé is a rapper and songwriter who gained fame for his commercial debut single, “Caroline”, which rose to No. 11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. He’s released two studio albums: “Good For You” in 2017 and “Limbo” in 2020.

Listeners might know him best from hit songs “REEL IT IN,” “Spice Girl,” or “Heebiejeebies.” Nearly 9.3 million people check in with his music monthly on Spotify.

Jack Harlow

Finally, Jack Harlow will close out the night. A rapper originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Harlow went viral when his song, “WHATS POPPIN”, took TikTok by storm. Harlow has since produced two albums — “That’s What They All Say” in 2020 and “Come Home, The Kids Miss You”, which will be released on May 6.

In July 2021, Harlow appeared on Lil Nas X’s track, “Industry Baby”, while also releasing his own new single, “Nail Tech”, in February 2022. He debuted his latest single, “First Class,” in April 2022. He currently attracts more than 41.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
