Skream, DJ Premier and Maya Jane Coles to headline MoMA PS1 Warm Up

Exclusive: annual outdoor party at the Queens art venue offers its usual diverse selection with hip-hop and techno giants sitting alongside a British invasion

MoMA PS1 has released the details of its annual Warm Up summer parties, which will feature acts ranging from hip-hop and techno stalwarts such as DJ Premier and DJ Stingray to British dance music stars in the form of Skream and Maya Jane Coles.

The event will start on 11 June with a lineup including Fatima Yamaha whose track Whats A Girl To Do was a sleeper hit when it was reissued last year as well as grime star Flava D and a headline performance from DJ Premier, who formed half of hip-hop duo Gang Starr.

Warm Up runs every Saturday until 27 August and features DJ sets and live performances at the Queens venue, which is a sister site of the MoMA in Manhattan (tickets are available now).

The annual parties are in their 19th year and take place in the PS1 courtyard, which this year will also have an installation from Mexico City-based architecture firm Escobedo Solz Studio.

In a press release MoMA PS1 stated: Warm Up supports both established and emerging artists by creating a platform that allows for experimentation and provides a space for collaboration, new material, and side projects.

The lineup is chosen by a committee that includes: Dean Bein of True Panther Sounds; Jace Clayton AKA DJ /rupture; Jonathan Galkin of DFA Records; Eliza Ryan; Brandon Stosuy from Pitchfork; Imogene Strauss of Cool Managers; and Matt Werth of RVNG Intl, whose roster includes artists such as Holly Herndon.

Full lineups (additional acts will be added throughout the summer):
