Warm Up 2019

July 6–August 31, 2019


MoMA PS1’s pioneering outdoor music series Warm Up returns in 2019 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 2019 runs every Saturday in July and August, from July 6 through August 31, with the full lineup to be announced in May.

Advance tickets are now available for all Warm Up dates. Additionally, MoMA PS1 has launched a special ticket package offering admission and expedited entry for all nine dates, available for $99 for a limited time at mo.ma/ticketpackage.

This year, MoMA PS1 is partnering with The Lot Radio for a special Warm Up-focused radio series airing on Thursdays from 12 to 2 p.m., featuring DJ sets from Warm Up curators, past and future performers, and friends of the program. The show will premiere on May 16 highlighting the newly-announced lineup for the season.

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 (Remezcla), Jonas Leon (On-Retainer Agency), and Matt Werth (RVNG Intl.).
