The xx to Play Night + Day Mini-Festivals; Also Reveal 2 Live Acoustic Sessions
Busy times for The xx. The band just announced their new Night + Day mini-festivals which will take place in “unique and beautiful locations.” I guess we can rule out Detroit as a stop.
The band have “picked the artists that we most respect and admire to join us. The events will run from early afternoon, with some of our favourite music (and food) to take you from day into night.” You had me at food! The dates are May 5, 2013 at Jardim da Torres de Belém in Lisbon, Portugal, May 18, 2013 at Spreepark in Berlin, Germany (which is an abandoned theme park!), and June 23, 2013 at Osterley Park & House in London.
The band also played some acoustic tracks on BBC Radio 2. They played the lovely Angels from recent album, Coexist, as well as a cover of Womack & Womack’s Teardrops. Check them out below.
