While technically the MoMA PS1 is a museum, their Warm-Up summer series is anything but. Every Saturday afternoon/evening, from the months of June through September, the outdoor courtyard turns into a music festival.
Besides a slew of top-tier DJs, the summer series is known for sporting some truly cutting edge architecture. In fact, Warm Up is in collaboration with MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program (YAP), which is a yearly series of competitions that allows budding architects to work on projects that the MoMA PS1 faculty conceives.
Doors open at noon, and and if you visit MoMA PS1 on Warm Up Saturdays, you'll have to purchase the $18 ticket in advance ($20 at the door). 2015 marked the series' 18th year, and there are no plans to stop the summer celebration in the coming years. If in town during the summer months, make sure to swing by for cocktails and great music in their outdoor courtyard.
