The Museum of Modern Art's off-site affiliate, MoMA PS1, in Queens, NY, is a leading purveyor of contemporary art. In the interest of bringing contemporary art to a wider audience, MoMA started the enormously successful summer-music series Warm Up.
There's an interesting mix of people at these things. Some people are there for the music, some are there for the art, and some are there, I think, to appear to be there for the music or the art. Photographers trying to capture interesting or hot or fashionable people compose a good chunk of the demographic (yes, I'm guilty too), and the line between the observer and the observed is blurry.
