Night & Day: The xx + Solange + Mount Kimbie + Polica + Kindness + Jamie (The XX) DJ Set + Benji B + Sampha
Curated by The xx, Night & Day is a series of events taking place in Lisbon, Berlin and London to start the summer of 2013.
The xx will headline each event, picking artists to join them that they respect and admire, plus an area of locally-sourced food stalls and shops, a DJ stage and much more, all set in the most unique venues they could find.
Polica, Kindness, Mount Kimbie are the first bands to be confirmed, with many more live acts and DJs still to be announced.
2010 Mercury Prize winners The xx are a London trio known for their captivating stripped-down minimalist sound. It's often been said that "quiet is the new loud" and The xx are certainly among the best at creating gentle yet intense atmospheric mood music. Simplistic bass and keyboards at hush levels with vocals at almost a whisper, their delicate songs have led to comparisons with Young Marble Giants and early Cocteau Twins.
The xx tour dates
The little sister of Destiny Child's Beyonce Knowles is a singer-songwriter, actress, model, dancer, and DJ.
Solange tour dates
Dom Maker and Kai Campos are better known as London duo Mount Kimbie. They have taken the whole post-dubstep and future-bass continuum to a whole new audience. Their music experiments with field recordings and other organic sounds, whilst still having all eyes (and ears) on the dancefloor. Their two EPs and full length debut 'Crooks And Lovers', on Hotflush Recordings, offer a tender collection of songs that blur the lines between ambient, downtempo and dubstep. Fans of Four Tet would be recommended to climb into the world of Mount Kimbie.
Mount Kimbie tour dates
Polica, the super slick electronic pop-soul outfit fronted by ice cool vocalist Channy Leanagh, rapidly become one of 2012's most talked about bands after a whirlwind SXSW. Drowned In Sound named them band of the festival and they were favourites for many others including The Times and The Telegraph. Their single 'Dark Star' was a radio hit, getting 'Record Of The Week' accolades from Huw Stephens and Fearne Cotton, as well as Zane Lowe's 'Album of the Week' for the addictive Give You The Ghost.
"You could waste days trying to define the genre in which Polica operate, but actually it's just pop – incredibly beautiful – pop" - The Sunday Times
