Here are the Important Deets (please read carefully; all questions to answers already provided in event details will be ignored)
It’s not a festival. It’s an un-festival, where the formula of “stand, watch band, watch feet, repeat” is tossed out the window. At Day For Night, light and sound collide in a tirelessly imaginative mix of music and digital art that reinvents the festival experience. The stages? Two indoor controlled environments and one outdoor space, all loaded with periphery-flooding video art and immersive lighting.
The artists? Universally lauded visual mavericks such as Casey Reas (who specializes in conceptual software-painted landscapes) and Refik Anadol (a parametric data sculptor). In the words of producer Omar Afra, “What we aim for here is the wonder, the jaw-dropping allure, the accoutrements that make a festival fun: socially relevant, risk-taking art, and the surprises that catch participants off guard to let the magic in.”

An eclectic musical lineup
Day for Night is both a current snapshot of popular music, as well as a showcase for trailblazers who continue to crossover from fringe to influential. The focus across multiple musical genres is on acts that specialize in an inventive and highly visual approach to performing.
Mixed with ambitious installations
The visual artists build experiences within the blurred boundaries of performance, interaction and immersive installations both indoors and out. Large scale projections and site-specific custom-built structures bring a heightened sensorial experience to new audiences.
