With more than a dozen installations by visual artists from around the world, Day for Night accepted the difficult task of orchestrating a unique setting that blends arts culture with that of a music festival, all within and surrounding a decommissioned post office in the heart of downtown Houston. Building out a festival of this magnitude is a tedious process and we appreciate the countless hours spent by all involved. We’re humbled and honored to have worked with so many talented people, both locally and internationally. Without them, Day for Night would not be possible.

Thanks to the hard work of the visual artists — including Björk, United Visual Artists, Golan Levin, NONOTAK, Shoplifter, Tundra, Robert Seidel, Damien Echols, AV&C + Houzé, Michael Fullman of VT Pro Design, Ezra Miller, Alex Czetwertynski, Various Projects, LIMB + Eric Todd, Children of the Light and Jon Durst — as well as the dozens of musical acts, Day for Night facilitated a distinctive environment that blends gallery culture with festival culture.

Special thanks to Generations, Onstage Systems, LD Systems, Gensler, The City of Houston, and all of the attendees. We’re honored to have such an inspired crowd and appreciate your patience as we work tirelessly to plan the 2017 event. We hope this video gives you insight into the efforts put forth by our industrious crew and all that went into making Day for Night 2016 possible.
