The xx have confirmed support acts for their upcoming Night + Day show.
The xx have always thrived on intimacy. So the band's global success has created a natural contradiction: how do you maintain communication with fans amidst the cold, sterile atmosphere of arena touring?
The solution is Night + Day. A series of events across Europe and beyond, The xx are set to kick off the concerts in London's Osterley Park & House on June 23rd.
Running from 1pm - 11pm, the day will match music against other entertainment. Support acts have now been confirmed, with Mount Kimbie, Kindness and Polica all set to perform.
The xx are clearly delighted at the bill. “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 bands and DJs announced soon as well as the line ups for Lisbon and Berlin, so stay tuned. xx”
"I went from hearing their music in passing, to looking them up, to buying their album, to seeing them play live, all in a week. The gig was so incredible and the whole experience reminded me what I loved about discovering new music" Romy
"We've had the pleasure of playing with Kindness in the past and found them to be one of the most energetic and entertaining bands we've seen. We both share a love of Disco and R&B and their song "House" was one of our favourites of last year" Oliver
"There is a beautiful use of space and melancholy, combined with a uniquely British sensibility to their music. We became fans and friends with them whilst touring our first album." Jamie
Tickets are on sale now.
