Warm Up 2015
As the glimmering summer haze subsides over the New York skyline, and the cooling blanket of night settles in over sultry Queens, it can mean only one thing for the city’s hip set – it’s time to Warm Up.
Now in its 18th year, the outdoor music series – presented by school of cool MoMA PS1 in its very own courtyard – reaches sizzling new heights with an unrivalled programme of experimental live music, sound and DJs.
This season’s genre-bending lineup of local and international talents has been curated by many a muso magnate, including the editor of beats bible Pitchfork, Brandon Stosuy; the co-founder of DFA Records, Jonathan Galkin; head of True Panther Sounds, Dean Bein; and Klaus Biesenbach, the director of MoMA PS1 itself.
Among the many acts to grace the stage, you’re advised (nay, ordered) not to miss heroes of the Chicago deep house scene, Virgo Four; former Finnish tram driver-turned-mix master, Jaakko Eino Kalevi; and Berlin club-land legend, Moritz von Oswald.
Accompanying the weekly Saturday sonic schedule is a spectacular site-specific installation designed by Spanish architect Andrés Jaque, which is both a water feature and an astounding artwork, designed to provide welcome respite from the summer swelter. Warm Up and get down!
Until 5 Sep, 2015.
