The xx are taking a spin on their own curated festival with an event called Night + Day, which happens June 23 in London. It's only the opening salvo, as Night + Day has plans to travel out into Europe for a number of shows. Today The xx announced that Poliça, Kindness and Mount Kimbie are all in on the act, which adds on the previous statement which read:
"We love all of these bands for different reasons and we are so excited to have them involved. Here’s a little introduction to each of them...
"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 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 in a while. 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
