Houston's Day For Night festival is approaching quickly and this years line-up is not one to miss.  It's set to take place on December 17th & 18th at the former Barbara Jordan Post Office in downtown Houston and will be headlined by Aphex Twin's first US performance in eight years. 

The festival is showcasing a lot of other artists to be excited about as well: Odesza, Bjork, Kaskade, Chet Faker, Travis Scott, Run The Jewels, Butthole Surfers, Banks, Blood Orange, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Little Dragon, Squarepusher, Blonde Redhead, Kamasi Washington, Thundercat, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, RZA, Washed Out, John Carpenter, Ariel Pink, Lightning Bolt, Oneohtrix Point Never, DJ Windows 98 (Win Butler of Arcade Fire), Liars, Lower Dens, S U R V I V E, Matmos, Clams Casino, Mykki Blanco, Chelsea Wolfe, SOPHIE, SG Lewis, Tobacco, Nothing, Fat Tony, Wild Mocassins & the list goes on…

To top all of that off, Day For Night is showcasing several large scale art installations that are just as exciting. I attended the festival last year and some of the installations that they displayed were just brilliant. My favorite, as I’m sure was many others, was Nonotak’s “Volume”. See below:

The visual art that this festival features really sets it apart from so many others and is worth the visit alone.  Check their site here to see all of the artists involved and to get a glimpse of what’s to come.
