Friday afternoon, students will gather at the Blue Band Field for Movin’ On, Penn State’s Annual Music Festival. Here’s what you need to know for Friday:

What is Movin’ On?

Let’s start  with the basics. Movin’ On is Penn State’s Annual student-run music festival. This year’s performers include Zach Wade & The Good Grief, Love & Theft, Clean Bandit, D.R.A.M., All Time Low, and Two Door Cinema Club.

Where is the festival held?

The location of the concert is on the Park Avenue Intramural Fields, across the street from East Halls and near the Katz Law Building.

There will also be merchandise available to purchase for performers, face paint and air brush tattoo’s and photo booths from the Student Programming Association, inflatables sponsored by the University Park Undergraduate Association, and tents from brands like Pepsi, Starbucks, and more!


Of course. Snyder’s Concessions will have food trucks to purchase things like funnel cake, french fries, Mexican food and more!
