It’s U-shaped, surrounded by tall concrete walls and within earshot of the 7 train — and it’s the place to be. On June 29th, this former schoolyard will host the first MoMA PS 1 Warm Up 2013 party of the summer. Every Saturday until September 7th, roughly 5,000 hipsters, party animals and international tourists will flock to the MoMA PS1 courtyard for cutting edge music (dance hall, juke, dubstep), modern art and out-of-the-box fun. The above-ground kiddie swimming pool, imported sand and chaise lounges are nice too. Now in its 16th year, Warm Up combines elements of outdoor rave with gallery show and street fair, but to regulars, it’s just another Saturday with friends. Details: Warm Up 2013, MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave., LIC, Saturdays from June 29 to Sept. 7, 3 pm – 9 pm but doors open at noon, $15 in advance/$18 day-of. Click here to buy tickets.
