The xx announce ‘Night + Day’ support line-up for Brixton gigs

The band will be joined by Sampha, Floating Points, Savages' Jehnny Beth, Cat Power and many more

The xx have announced a stellar bill up support acts and after-parties for their upcoming ‘Night + Day’ run of gigs at the Brixton Academy residency of their 2017 tour.

The trio started the now legendary ‘Night + Day’ series back in 2013 with a run of specially curated gigs in Lisbon, Berlin and London. Now in support of their acclaimed new album ‘I See You‘, they’ve applied the same treatment to their seven London shows – where they’ll be joined by the likes of Sampha, Kelela, Floating Points, Cat Power and Savages’ singer Jehnny Beth.

Not only that, but Jamie xx will headline and host an all day party (2pm-8pm) at the O2 Academy Brixton on Sunday 12 March. A pre-sale begins on Wednesday 15 February at 10am before going on general sale from 9am on Friday 17 February.

While the shows are sold out, fans can swap their tickets for a different night if they prefer the line-up over at a special page on Twickets.
