This year's Warm Up 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. This new location in the center of the Courtyard also harkens back to the earliest days of Warm Up, when performances were often viewed in the round.

Now in its 24th season, Warm Up is one of the longest running music programs housed within a museum. As an integral part of 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 Honey Dijon.

In addition to four hours of live and electronic music, Warm Up attendees will also be able to experience art installations in the Courtyard by Gregg Bordowitz, Niki de Saint Phalle, and Raul de Níeves, as well as PS1's acclaimed exhibitions Niki de Saint Phalle: Structures for Life, Gregg Bordowitz: I Wanna Be Well, and the Homeroom installation Black Trans Liberation: Memoriam and Deliverance (through August 16).
