What is it?

Day for Night is a 2-day music and light festival taking place this Winter in Houston, TX. Landing a week before Christmas and dubbed Day For Night, the un-festival is scheduled for December 19 and 20 around a six-block area surrounding Silver Street Studio, itself a 20,000 square foot event space. The plan is to combine music and digital art in a way befitting its description as an experiential festival.

“What we aim for here is the wonder, the jaw-dropping allure, the accoutrements that make a festival fun: socially relevant risk-taking art, and the surprises that catch participants off guard to let the magic in,” says Afra, FPH publisher and a co-founder of Free Press Summer Fest.

Immersive lighting, projection, and video art will be displayed in two controlled environments with stages serving as indoor performance halls featuring live musical performances. A third, outdoor stage will showcase continuous artistic content including music, original video installations, projections, and lighting.

Headliners include Kendrick Lamar, New Order, Phillip Glass Ensemble, Dillon Francis, Janelle Monáe, Flying Lotus, and Death Grips. For the full lineup and to purchase tickets, visit their website at
