Over a decade and a half of packing MoMA PS1's courtyard with NYC's music aficionados and sun-worshiping revelers, Warm Up is bigger than ever, with as strong a lineup of bands, DJs and producers as it's had in years. This year's highlights include LuckyMe's Eclair Fifi, Cut Copy DJs, a whole day's worth of Night Slugs, Lotic and Vessel from Tri Angle Records and techno legend Moritz von Oswald. Here's the lowdown on the summer's biggest weekly outdoor party. (And if you still can't get enough, make sure to check out our selection of the best summer music parties happening this season.)
