The xx have announced on Wednesday (May 10) that their Night + Day festival will be heading 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, and more. Here’s the band’s statement on the event: 

This July we are beyond excited to bring Night + Day to Iceland, for a special intimate weekend of music beside the Skogafoss 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 you can join us there in July!

Night + Day Iceland will take place from 7/14-16. Tickets go on sale on Friday (5/12). More information can be found here.
