Solange, Nine Inch Nails Will Headline Day For Night Festival 2017
The official lineup for the third annual Day For Night Festival was announced today, a strong statement that the city is getting back on its feet and ready to move ahead in the wake of the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey just a few weeks ago.
The headliners announced for the 2017 event are as varied as they are impressive — Solange, Nine Inch Nails, Thom Yorke, Justice, and St. Vincent — top the bill alongside Tyler The Creator, James Blake, Pretty Lights, Jamie XX, and Phantogram.
The three-day festival bills itself as an event dedicated to "[exploring] the deep connections between light, technology, sound and space," and since its inception in 2015 has become a yearly meeting of the minds for artists, technicians, and cultural figures on the forefront of the creative digital space.
Along with the strong billing of headliners and supporting acts, festival attendees will be treated to 18 different visual art installations from creators like Ryoji Ikeda, Matthew Schreiber, and Radio Soulwax. There will also be a panel discussion on the intersection between art and activism featuring Chelsea Manning, Laurie Anderson, Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot, and Lauren McCarthy.
The Night For Day Festival will take place in Houston on Dec. 15-17. Tickets and additional information can be found on the festival website.
