Free Press Houston’s festival Day for Night has released their lineup—and it is spectacular. Last year, the festival pulled in legendary act Aphex Twin, as well as a solid number of other impressive acts, and some attendees were apprehensive about whether or not they could release a lineup for 2017 that stacked up to last year’s billing. Yet, they have outdone themselves this year.
This is going to be Day for Night’s third consecutive year and will take place in downtown Houston December 16-17, with an additional special Friday night event on December 15 for those who choose to purchase a ticket that allows access to the pre-party.
Day for Night provides a unique experience of melding modern technology, sound, and light in a manner that is unlike any other American festival out there today. The venue is a 1.5 million square foot old historic post-office in downtown Houston that offers both outdoor and indoor stages as well as interactive art and light installations all throughout the interior space.
Highlights of the Sound lineup include Nine Inch Nails, Thom Yorke, Solange, Justice, St. Vincent, Tyler, The Creator, James Blake, Pretty Lights, Jamie XX, Phantogram, Pussy Riot, The Jesus Lizard, Laurie Anderson, REZZ, Nina Kraviz, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Cashmere Cat, Cardi B, Perfume Genius, Sky Ferreira, Gas, En Vogue, Lil B, of Montreal, Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois, Princess Nokia, Kimbra, Mount Kimbie, Corbin x Shlohmo, Shabazz Palaces, Andy Stott, Priests – and so many more.
For the Light billing, Day for Night has snagged Ryoji Ikeda, Matthew Schreiber, Conditional Studio + Processing Foundation, James Clar, Felicie D’Estienne d’Orves, Kyle McDonald + Jonas Jongejan, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Radio Soulwax, and more!
Two-day GA passes, as well as the three-day (pre-party inclusive) passes, can be purchased on the festival website here. Be sure to follow Day For Night on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for future announcements.
