It’ll take more than the devastation of Hurricane Harvey to shut down Houston’s Day For Night festival. The three-day festival is set for December 15-17, 2017. Topping the lineup are Nine Inch Nails, Pretty LightsJustice, PhantogramTyler, The Creator, and James Blake, along with 18 art installations and performances by internationally renowned visual artists such as Ryoji Ikeda and Matthew Schreiber.

Day for Night has become known for it’s state-of-the-art lighting productions and art installations on par with Coachella and Burning Man, while retaining an underground/indie festival ethos. The Day for Night Summit, a consciousness raising speaker forum, will kick off the weekend festivities on Friday, with prominent activists sharing their thoughts on the relationship between art, technology, and activism, featuring the likes of LGBTQ advocate Chelsea Manning and the political activist musings of Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova.

Joining the well-rounded list of headlining talent, which also includes Thom Yorke, Solange, and St. Vincent, are electronic music heavy weights G Jones, REZZ, Kaytranada, Marcus Marr, and Cashmere Cat, with an eclectic list of indie-rock appearances by Deep Cuts, True American, and spoken word artist Saul Wiliams.

Tickets to Day for Night 2017 range from $215 to $750 with fees. This year, a portion of the festival’s proceeds will help the Greater Houston Community Foundation aid people in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey.
