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, 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.

To help support music spaces and artists across the city that have been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, PS1 is teaming up with Red Bull to raise money for NYC Nightlife United, an emergency relief fund focused on supporting BIPOC-owned and led businesses that create safe spaces for BIPOC and LGBTQIA communities. Warm Up audiences will be encouraged to donate to the fund during the program. Through a merchandise program supported by Red Bull, attendees will be able to purchase t-shirts designed by Willie Norris that recycle Warm Up 2018 deadstock designed by artist Andrew Kuo to benefit NYC Nightlife United.
