ABOUT DAY FOR NIGHT Founded in 2015 by Free Press Houston and New York-based creative agency Work-Order, Day for Night is a visually immersive art and music festival that explores light, space, and sound. It has transformed the festival landscape by combining new media art and headlining musicians to create new sensory experiences. Day for Night will take place at the historic Barbara Jordan Post Office (401 Franklin Street), a 1.5 million square foot indoor-outdoor space. Day for Night 2016 brought over 23,000 people to view 16 exhibitions and a two-night music festival that featured 68 bands, including the Aphex Twin—against a backdrop of virtual reality art installations by the likes of Björk. The inaugural festival in 2015 featured musicians including Kendrick Lamar, New Order, Philip Glass Ensemble, Dillon Francis, Janelle Monáe, Flying Lotus and Death Grips, as well as installations by more than a dozen leading visual artists from across the globe.
