Band reveal details of forthcoming gigs
Polica, Mount Kimbie and Kindness have now all been confirmed for the show, which takes place in London’s Osterley Park on June 23. Speaking about the announcement, The xx said: “It is a pleasure to be able to announce the first three acts confirmed for the London Night + Day. We love all of these bands for different reasons and we are so excited to have them involved.
“There will be many more band and DJs announced soon as well as the line ups for Lisbon and Berlin,” they added.
The xx’s series of Night + Day gigs will take place in a series of unusual locations in May and June of this year, with venues including a waterfront park in Portugal, an abandoned Berlin theme park and a London palace. The xx will headline each night, but the events will begin in the afternoon and feature a full bill of acts.
Speaking previously about the shows, The xx’s Romy Madley Croft said: “We want it to be a bit different to going to a sponsored, corporate thing, with a bit more attention to detail in the music. We’ll be starting at around one and going on until about 11pm, so it’s basically a day out. A day out with The xx.”
The xx will play:
Lisbon Jardim da Torres de Belëm (May 5)
Berlin Spreepark (May 18)
Osterley Park & House (June 23)
