Warm Up 2020


On the Saturday of Labor Day weekend (September 5) from 12 to 8 p.m., MoMA PS1 will present an all-day livestreaming edition of Warm Up that celebrates New York City’s music communities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. With eight hours of continuous music streamed live from MoMA PS1’s iconic courtyard and framed by stage design created by New York-based artist Cécile McLorin Salvant, Warm Up will feature twelve DJ sets and live performances by artists who represent the city’s expansive music community, including Papi Juice, an art collective celebrating queer and trans people of color; Barbie Bertisch, who runs the beloved fanzine Love Injection; Bronx-based label Sie7etr3; and more.

Broadcast globally in partnership with music streaming platform Boiler Room, this one-day-only program will also stream at outdoor music venues across the city, allowing audiences to patronize the open, outdoor cultural spaces in their neighborhoods. These venues include The Rockaway Hotel, the official hotel sponsor of Warm Up; Queens Botanical Garden; 99 Scott; Cafe Erzulie; Elsewhere; Ode to Babel; Public Records; and Rise Radio. Please refer to each venue directly for details and reservations, as well as information about their COVID-19 policies.
