Day For Night Fest Partners With Underbelly, Burger Joint, Peli Peli & Others

The first annual music and art festival in Houston aligns itself with heavy-hitting local food truck and restaurant vendors.

Day For Night Houston

The first ever Day For Night festival will be Houston's only two day festival to combine immersive art installations with live music performances this weekend December 19 and 20.  Houstnoians were thrilled to see the headlining bands: New Order, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Janelle Monae and Philip Glass. Today they announce the local restaurant and food truck partners and it seems to be a as diverse and as exciting as the talent lineup.

The vendor list consists of a wide variety of cuisines as well as offering gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options. In addition to housing an extensive list of food trucks, the festival will also feature tents.

The action in the tents include Peli Peli, Houston's only South African restaurant. Sammy's Wild Game Grill, is offering exciting sausages, Tout Suite with deserts and Gulf Coast offering quick burritos, cheeseburgers, fries and more. Chef Chris Shepherd of Underbelly will also be present at the festival at The Hay Merchant tent serving hamburgers and pulled pork tacos.

The food trucks include The Burger Joint, who recently just opened a brick and mortar and creole/cajun faire from The Lunch Bag. Delicious, vegetarian gluten-free options from Krishna's Cuisine, as well as the ever trendy Ramen Burger and more from Oh! My Gogi. Even more of Houston's favorite trucks will be present, including Waffle Bus, Kurbside Eatz, Koagie Hots, Pocket to Me, Pho-Jita Fusion, The Waffle Bus, Wild Bill's Soda, and Happy Endings; as well as newer trucks such as The Lucky Fig.

Prepare for a great weekend of food, art and music.
