Crikey! We have another festival happening here in Iceland! This is an absolute tastemakers paradise!
The xx have announced that their Night + Day festival will be coming to Iceland in July after stints in Lisbon, Berlin, and Brixton. It’ll take place at a waterfall called Skogafoss that’s two hours away from Reykjavik, and it’ll feature (of course) the xx and Jamie xx themselves, plus Kamasi Washington, Warpaint, Earl Sweatshirt, Sampha, Robyn & Mr Tophat, Jagwar Ma, Floating Points, Marching Church. From the local talent we have GANGLY, Högni, JFDR, Mr Silla, Kria Brekkan and LOADS more to be announced!
Here’s the band’s statement on the event:
“We are beyond excited to bring Night + Day to Iceland this July for a special intimate weekend of music beside the Skógafoss waterfall! We fell in love with Iceland while recording some of ‘I See You’ there a few years ago and we are so looking forward to returning and bringing some of our friends, from near and far. We hope to see you there!”
Night + Day Iceland will take place from 14-16 July. Tickets go on sale on Friday 12 May. More information can be found here.
