After taking shape as a one-day virtual event last year, MoMA PS1’s popular outdoor music series Warm Up will return this August for its 24th season. Limited-capacity tickets are now on sale for the in-person events (it will also be streamed virtually) on August 7, 14, and 21 from 2–8 p.m. DJ sets and live performances include Amorphous, Yung Baby Tate, Yu Su, glaive and ericdoa, Sango, foreigner, La Goony Chonga, and more.

The musical sets will take place from 4-8pm, but doors open at 2pm for guests to enjoy exhibitions and art in the Courtyard, as well as refreshments by Mina’s. Tickets are $18 for non-members and free for Long Island City residents. Do note that all ticket holders will be required to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for entry. The program will also be available to livestream globally.

This year’s acts will be performed from Rashid Johnson’s Stage, “a participatory installation and sound work that draws on the history of the microphone as a tool for protest and public oratory, while recalling the metonymic references to microphones in hip-hop lyrics from the 1980s to the present.” It’s located in the center of the courtyard, where early-year Warm Ups took place.

August 7
Yung Baby Tate
Patia’s Fantasy World (Patia Borja, MISTERVACTION, and River Moon)
