MoMA PS1’s pioneering outdoor music series Warm Up returns on July 6, presenting the best in live and electronic music every Saturday in July and August. Known for its innovative and ambitious program, Warm Up celebrates a wide range of artists across genres: both emerging and established, local and global. This year’s program welcomes more than 75 artists, including Fuego, Sho Madjozi, The Marías, Kelly Lee Owens, Smino, Eris Drew, The Martinez Brothers, Michael Brun, FLOORPLAN, and Mall Grab, as well as an opening day headlining set by collaborators Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, the first U.S. performance by Nigerian artist Santi, and a rare U.S. appearance by legendary BBC DJ Annie Mac. The current lineup follows below, and additional artists will be added throughout the summer. Advance tickets are now available for all dates.
Each year, Warm Up takes place within a site-specific installation by the winners of the Young Architects Program. This year’s winner, Hórama Rama by Mexico City-based architects Pedro & Juana, is a 40-foot-tall cyclorama featuring jungle imagery that sits atop the courtyard walls, providing a refuge amid the changing Long Island City skyline. Warm Up attendees are also encouraged to visit the museum galleries and experience MoMA PS1’s acclaimed exhibitions of contemporary art from around the world.
