Your Guide To Movin’ On 2024

It’s almost time to rage, folks.

Penn State’s end-of-the-year music festival Movin’ On is slated for the last day of classes on Friday, April 26.

Every year, one of the largest student-run music festivals takes place on the IM Fields for students to hang out, listen to music, and celebrate the end of the year. The festival gives seniors one last goodbye as they ~move on~ from Penn State and take on the real world.

Get your rave fits together and check out our guide below before attending one of the most-anticipated events of the year.

The Details

Gates will open at 3:30 p.m. along with vendors, inflatables, food trucks, and activities offered all day, and the festival will end promptly at 10:30 p.m. The festival is located at the IM Fields near Jeffrey Field in the east corner of campus.

Admission is free for those at least 18 years old, however, you must have your student ID or a government-issued ID handy for when you get to the gates.

In addition to drugs and alcohol, pets, lawn chairs, balls, tents, video recording, professional cameras, noisemakers, and camping are all prohibited. You can bring an empty, reusable water bottle to fill at the refill stations inside the gates.

Your bag must be a clear tote (12″ x 12″ x 6″), plastic zip-top bag (11″ x 11″ x 0″), wallet, or clutch (6.5″ x 4.5″). Fanny packs and mesh bags are not allowed.

For parking, folks can pay $1 an hour at the East Parking Deck or $10 at the Stadium West parking lot.

In the event that it rains, ponchos and rain jackets are encouraged, but umbrellas are not allowed. The festival is rain or shine, however, but in the case of extreme inclement weather, the festival could be delayed or canceled.

The Lineup

Dayglow

Dayglow is Movin’ On’s headliner and will perform last. The band is best known for its hit song “Can I Call You Tonight?” and has released three studio albums since its formation in 2018. Dayglow has over 5.8 million monthly listeners on Spotify and has had several songs go viral on TikTok.

Sexyy Red

Sexyy Red will precede Dayglow after making an appearance at the 2023 White Out. Best known for her hits “SkeeYee” and a feature on Drake’s “Rich Baby Daddy,” Sexyy Red entered the music scene in 2018 with the track “Ah Thousand Jugs” in 2018 and has since gained attention and fans with “Pound Town.”

Freddie Gibbs

Rapper Freddie Gibbs will showcase hit songs like “1985” and “Something to Rap About” ahead of Sexyy Red. Gibbs began releasing music in 2006 and gained traction with the 2014 album “Piñata” and collaborations with The Alchemist. Gibbs’ most recent album “Soul Sold Separately” was released in 2022. His music is perfect for all rap enthusiasts.

The 502s

The 502s’ performance, presented by the Student Programming Association (SPA), will take the stage as the second act of the day. Featured songs will include “Just A Little While” and “Magdalene,” both of which gained lots of traction across social media. Its recent release “Perfect Portrait of Young Love” has over 2.4 million listens on Spotify.

Hot Fudge Yacht Club 

To kick off the night, Battle of the Bands winner Hot Fudge Yacht Club will be featured on the Movin’ On stage. The rock band, known for its occasional performances at local bars, will perform a slate of original songs from its first EP “Vol. 1.”
