The xx headlined the first night of Bonnaroo, a pretty big event for a band that has exploded in popularity in only one year and one album. It's a testament to the group's cross-genre reach that they were booked for Bonnaroo at all, a festival more inclined to summer folk than the colder R&B that is The xx's trademark. But they killed it on stage, probably converting about a million festival goers into fans. Before the madness of their 11:30 PM set, we caught up with Romy for a quick chat about who they would book for their own personal festival, making mixtapes, the places they've gone, and the crazy places they've yet to go. If this next year is as life-changing for them as the last, they'll most certainly be exactly where they like.
