Day For Night is a peculiar festival. Not only because it falls outside of traditional festival season, but because when it says it's a music and arts festival, it means it. In fact, after spending the weekend down in Houston, Texas, music seemed to come second. Art truly triumphs at Day for Night; light installations are the destination the same way Calvin Harris is at Coachella. And, as a result, it pulls a crowd unheard of at music festivals. (Sorry, flower crown princesses!) The 15 light installations scattered around Day for Night's grounds are made for Instagram heaven. Wonderland is real, and it's called Day for Night festival. Fall down the rabbit hole in our exclusive gallery, below.
