[Photo Story] Movin’ On 2024 Closes Out Spring Semester

Penn State’s annual end-of-year music festival, Movin’ On, returned to the IM Fields on Friday to send off the Class of 2024 and celebrate the end of the school year in style. The festival featured a slate of performers including Dayglow, Sexyy Red, Freddie Gibbs, The 502s, and Hot Fudge Yacht Club, all of whom performed fan-favorite songs into the night.

Our photographers were on site at the IM Fields throughout the day to capture the sights and sounds of this year’s festival.

Hot Fudge Yacht Club opened the festival after it clinched Movin’ On’s Battle of the Bands competition. The local “basement funk” band set the tone for the afternoon with good vibes and groovy tunes.

After Hot Fudge Yacht Club opened, indie folk band The 502s brought high energy to kick off the day’s headliners.

“Ya like jazz?” Answer: yes. Yes, we do.

The Florida-based group performed viral sensations “Just A Little While,” “Perfect Portrait of Young Love,” “Magdalene,” and more for the early afternoon crowd.

All sunshine and smiles here, folks!

Freddie Gibbs then took the Movin’ On stage, keeping the crowd movin’ and groovin’ as the day carried on.

Gibbs was iced out with what looked like a bunny holding a beer attached to his gold chain.

The rapper performed his hits “1985,” “Something to Rap About,” “Crime Pays,” “Thuggin’,” and “God Is Perfect,” to electrify the audience.

As the sun started to set, Gibbs closed his set with “Big Boss Rabbit” after the crowd chanted for him to sing one last song.

Up next, was none other than Sexyy Red, one of the most anticipated performances of the festival.

Sexxy Red spiced up Movin’ On by performing her hits “SkeeYee,” “Rich Baby Daddy,” “Female Gucci Mane,” and “Looking For The Hoes (Ain’t My Fault).”

Throughout her set, audience members chanted “Get it, Sexyy” and “Shake that ass, hoe,” amplifying the performance.

Sexyy Redd rocked lime green hair and a pink puffy jacket.

Sexyy Red left the crowd voiceless, sweaty, and amped up for the closing act of the night.

Headliner Dayglow then took the stage, performing what it called “lowkey-rock” to close out this year’s music festival.

The duo performed some of its top-charting hits “Hot Rod,” “Run the World,” and one of the most anticipated songs of the night: “Can I Call You Tonight.”

The bromance is real.

“Can we call you tonight,” Dayglow?

The band wrapped up both the festival and the school year as students are ready to take on the summer. Until next spring semester, Movin’ On!
