The xx will play a record-breaking run of live shows in London next month. Today, February 14, the band has announced the full support line-up for those shows plus a series of additional events and after-parties for their live stint in their hometown. These shows will form the core of the band's Night + Day Festival.
The U.K. trio will be joined by Sampha, Kelela, Robyn, Cat Power, Mica Levi, Jehnny Beth of Savages, Floating Points, and Francis And The Lights across the seven nights they play at O2 Academy Brixton between March 8-15. DJs across these dates include Joy Orbison, Benji B, Beatrice Dillon, Ben UFO, Daniel Brandt, and Gilles Peterson.
In addition to the headline dates, The xx has also planned a series of other events across London during their run of shows. There will be screenings of films hand-picked by the band at The Whirled Cinema in Loughborough Junction and plans for a week long "collaborative curation" between The xx and Reprezent Radio DJs based in Pop Brixton.
Full details of all of these plans, plus a day by day break down of the support slots can be found here.
