The xx took to the The Park Stage 20 minutes late following an extended soundcheck tonight (June 25)
The crowd didn’t seem to mind their late arrival, loudly welcoming the black clad trio.
“It’s such an honour to be here and be on this stage, so thank you all for coming to see us,” added Romy Madley Croft.
Later the band included a cover in their set, with Sim asking the crowd “Do we have any funky house fans in the audience?” before launching into ‘Do You Mind?’ by Kyla.
Sim then told the crowd he’d bought his mum with him today, before pointing to the side of the stage and calling Florence And The Machine‘s set earlier in the day “amazing”. Despite rumours, the singer did not join them for a live version of their remix of ‘You’ve Got The Love’, although there is still time for the collaboration to take place as The xx play the John Peel Stage tomorrow.
The xx played:
‘Heart Skipped A Beat’
‘Do You Mind?’
