As Houston organizations are looking for ways to attract new tourists to the city, Free Press Houston is getting back into the winter-carnival game with a two-day event that producer Omar Afra promises won’t be “just another festival.” Landing a week before Christmas and dubbed Day For Night, the un-festival is scheduled for December 19 and 20 around a six-block area surrounding Silver Street Studio, itself a 20,000 square foot event space. According to Afra, the plan is to combine music and digital art in a way befitting its description as an experiential festival.

“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,” says Afra, FPH publisher and a co-founder of Free Press Summer Fest.

Immersive lighting, projection, and video art will be displayed in two controlled environments with stages serving as indoor performance halls featuring live musical performances. A third, outdoor stage will showcase continuous artistic content including music, original video installations, projections, and lighting.
