What a way to end 2016. I had the opportunity to travel down to Houston, TX (HTX) for Day for Night: the festival of the future. Combining headlining musicians with immersive art installations, Day for Night transforms live music production by introducing new sensory experiences to the festival landscape. The festival consisted of dozens of music acts as well as multiple art installations. Here are some of the experiences I had:
