If you thought last year’s Movin’ On lineup was exciting, get ready for this year’s. This year, Logic, Daya, Judah & the Lion, and Mick Jenkins are set to perform at the free, annual end-of-the-year concert.
Prior to the actual reveal of acts that would be coming this year, several clues had been shared via social media to give students some idea of who would be coming.
“I personally didn’t have any idea of who would be included in the lineup. The clues were really creative, though, and it made sense when the lineup was actually released to put the pieces together,” Kelly McSteen, a member of the creative marketing core committee, says.
One clue had words from a Daya song in a crossword puzzle, while another clue had a picture of a jazz man for Mick Jenkins. The clues definitely kept people on their toes in excitement for official release.
The thrill surrounding the lineup stems from Logic—the headliner to the festival.
“Everyone seemed super excited because Logic is currently one of the top trending rap artists, considering he is dropping his new mix tape and going on an arena tour,” McSteen says.
Logic will be going on tour and is projected to sell out Madison Square Garden, so it makes sense as to why students are really looking forward to him coming to University Park.
“We actually lucked out in picking him up, so we’re happy with the positive feedback we’ve gotten in our attempt to get him for the event,” says McSteen.
With Logic’s performance, along with the other exciting acts, there is sure to be a greater crowd of people at Movin’ On. State College residents, friends of students, and any other music lovers will flock to the festival this year. Intramural Fields are definitely going to packed on the day of the event with thousands of people looking forward to seeing the performers.
“We’ve already asked for more security because we’re expecting an increase in the number of people in attendance, especially those who wouldn’t have thought to come to Movin’ On in the past,” said McSteen.
One of the best things about Movin’ On is that it appeals to music lovers of all genres. McSteen, in particular, is most excited about Judah & the Lion.
“This will be my second time seeing them,” she said. “I’m personally really into alternative and indie music, so that’s mainly why I’m looking forward to seeing them.”
On the other hand, Logic and Mick Jenkins are distinguished as hip-hop artists, whereas Daya is more on the pop side of music. Mark your calendars for the festival on April 27 so you don’t miss out on this iconic lineup.
