Love and Theft
Country music fans may be familiar with Love and Theft, as they broke into the music scene with the single “Angel Eyes.” The duo, composed of Stephen Barket Liles and Eric Gunderson have earned major accolades in the country music community with various nominations.
The next performer on the list was brought to Movin’ On in collaboration with the Student Programming Association. The group, comprised of Grace Chatto, Jack Patterson, and Luke Patterson bring an electronic pop feel to the festival. The group’s claim to fame is their hit single “Rather Be” which won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.
“Ain’t no tellin’ what I’m finna be on….”
D.R.A.M., famously known for his hit single “Broccoli,” will also line this year’s festival. The Virginia born rapper released his album Big Baby D.R.A.M. last year and is sure to give a memorable performance.

From three consecutive albums debuting in the Top 10 to multiple No. 1 albums on Billboard’s Rock Albums and Alternative albums charts, the group has had a lot of success.
