Kamasi Washington, Sampha Join The xx For Their 'Night + Day' Series in Iceland
The xx have had a pretty good 2017 so far after recording parts of their third album, I See You in Reykjavik. Now, to commemorate the album, The xx will bring their popular Night + Day event series to Skógafoss, which is two hours west of Reykjavik, for a three-day festival.
Held from July 14-16, the musical celebration will feature performances from Sampha, Kamasi Washington, Earl Sweatshirt, Robyn, Warpaint, Floating Points, Call Super and more. The xx and Jamie xx will also perform. “We fell in love with Iceland while recording some of ‘I See You’ there a few years ago,” the band said in a press release. “We are so looking forward to returning and bringing some of our friends, from near and far.”
Tickets are limited to 6,000, but concertgoers will be treated to a beautiful location, equipped with an equally gorgeous waterfall. Information regarding ticketing and travel packages for Iceland can be found at ThexxNightandDay.com. Tickets went on sale on Friday, May 12 at 5 a.m. EST.
