Warm Up returns with nine Saturdays of the best in live and electronic music. Known for its innovative and ambitious program, Warm Up celebrates a wide range of artists: emerging and established, local and global, and across genres. Warm Up runs every Saturday in July and August.
Now in its 22nd season, Warm Up is one of the longest running music programs housed within a museum. As an integral part of MoMA PS1’s curatorial program, Warm Up seeks to elevate innovative, underrepresented voices and connect fans with music’s most important artists. The program’s alumni include contemporary creators Solange, Black Dice, Cardi B, Jamie XX, Lizzo, Skepta, Thom Yorke, Four Tet, and A-Trak as well as legendary DJs including Derrick May, DJ Premier, and Ritchie Hawtin.
Warm Up 2019 is organized by a curatorial committee led by Taja Cheek, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1, with Eliza Ryan, Naomi Zeichner (YouTube), Dean Bein (True Panther Records), Isabelia Herrera, Jonas Leon (On-Retainer Agency), and Matt Werth (RVNG Intl.).
