Nine Inch Nails, Thom Yorke, Solange to Headline Day for Night Festival

Nine Inch Nails, Thom Yorke, Solange to Headline Day for Night Festival”

Following the hype and rave reviews of last year's program, which featured Björk, Squarepusher and Aphex Twin's first live USA performance in eight years, the performances that are slated to take place during Day For Night's third edition have already started to attract a great deal of buzz. Since 2015 the Houston, Texas, festival has consistently unveiled musical lineups stocked with critical darlings, trailblazers and hitmakers and paired them alongside light installations by some of the most innovative artists in the medium, making it one of the most red-hot happenings in the game. The festival will see headliners of a powerhouse and diverse group of performers across four stages. Cardi B will also feature, as well as Jamie xx, Sky Ferreira, Of Montreal, and Phantogram. Eventually, Reznor and Nine Inch Nails performed "She's Gone Away" from their 2016 EP "Not The Actual Events" on the show though it wasn't their first choice.

Unsurprisingly, everyone you wanna see in 2017 will gather for this year's festival. See the lineup below to see what we mean. Day For Night also announced a Friday, December 15th Day For Night Summit, which will feature a panel with government transparency and LGBTQ advocate Chelsea Manning, visual artist and musician Laurie Anderson, musician and political activist Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot, and LA-based artist Lauren McCarthy. This will be followed by a performances by Earl Sweatshirt and Kaytranda.

Entering just its third year, Houston's Day For Night festival has quickly asserted itself as an inspired voice in the industry. There are VIP tickets available again this year and promises fans rapid entry, premium viewing areas, VIP lounges, free drinks and snacks, an onsite concierge and swag bags.

In solidarity with its hometown of Houston, Day For Night will donate a portion of its proceeds to the Greater Houston Community Foundation to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
