How Houston’s Day For Night festival served as a sound intersection of curatorial excellence

Houston, Texas’ Day
For Night
 festival has established itself as an
unconventional, hyper-sensory utopia. Bolstering an exemplary
menu of avant-garde talent, the festival satiates
thousands all while blurring the boundaries of performance
and offering the utmost in aural phenomena in its
industrial warehouse setting.

Day For Night prided itself on its snapshot booking in its
third year, by and for the experimentally-inclined. Enlisting
artists like Nina Kraviz,
Kaytranada,
Justice,
Jlin, Jamie xx, Mount Kimbie, Solange, REZZNine Inch
Nails
Tyler, the
Creator
, and Thom Yorke,
among others, the gathering has situated itself as an
unorthodox standout from an at times mundane, and largely
counterfeit American festival circuit.
