MoMA PS1 in Queens has announced its schedule of summer Warm-Up parties, which kicks off June 29 with a performance by Detroit techno pioneer Juan Atkins.

Can’t help but notice a bit of a Detroit theme here, with a few other Motor City acts making appearances as well, including MK, Octave One, Marcellus Pittman and  Recloose.

The performances were selected by a committee that was chosen by PS1’s director, Klaus Biesenbach, and organized by assistant curator Eliza Ryan. Here’s the committee: Dean Bein, head of True Panther Sounds; Kris Chen, head of XL Recordings; Jonathan Galkin, co-founder of DFA Records; Brandon Stosuy, editor at Pitchfork; Matt Werth, head of RVNG Intl; and Imogene Strauss, MoMA PS1’s bookings and stage manager.

The full line-up is below.
