Day For Night 2017 :: December 15-17 (Houston, TX) – Visual Archive

Day For Night delivered its most ambitious festival yet, with a well-curated three-day program of music and cutting-edge visual art installations. Held at the site that was once home to Houston’s main post office, the festival once again offered two indoor and two outdoor stages, and over a million square feet of indoor space to get lost in.

Held at the site that was once home to Houston’s main post office, the festival once again offered two indoor and two outdoor stages, and over a million square feet of indoor space to get lost in.

Attendees first attracted by big-name stars like Thom Yorke and Solange were likely unprepared for the more aggressive performance by Japanese a/v artist Ryoji Ikeda (active since the 1990s, though rarely seen in the US), but his set and those of Venetian Snares and Demdike Stare proved to be highlights of the festival, along with a powerful headlining set by Nine Inch Nails in a rain storm on Saturday night and some exceptional light-based installation pieces that were running all weekend. For installation art, much of it interactive, Day For Night outperforms any festival in the country, and its inclusion elevates the event to new heights.
