The festival is planned for December 17-18 and is expected to feature Richard D. James.
Houston’s Day For Night festival won’t announce its lineup until tomorrow, but Warp Records have hinted Aphex Twin is on the bill. The label shared a teaser video today featuring the Aphex Twin logo and flashing the name of the festival.
Though Aphex has been riding a wave of activity since 2014 Syro, including this year’s Cheetah EP, an actual Aphex Twin performance is extremely rare (though he has been said to enjoy DJing anonymously). Considering Day For Night is described as “a visually immersive art and music festival exploring the boundaries of light, space and sound,” it will likely be quite a spectacle.
Listen to Aphex Twin’s recent single ‘CIRKLON3 [ Колхозная mix ]’ below and grab ticket for the festival here.
UPDATE: Billboard has confirmed Aphex Twin will be performing at the festival. This marks his first performance in the U.S. since 2008.
