The xx have been reinventing their Night + Day project year on year since the release of their self-titled second album. From day festivals to their eight-day series of gigs, talk and more at Brixton Academy earlier this year, Night + Day seems to get better with each iteration, and now they’ve announced the best yet.

The latest version of Night + Day will take place in Iceland this July, next to a waterfall of all places. From Brixton to Skógafoss, the band will be hosting and performing at their very own Night + Day festival, alongside some of their fave artists such as Sampha, Robyn, and Kamasi Washington. The general vibe of the artists announced, which can be seen in full below, is fairly chill, which will compliment the otherworldly backdrop of the Skógafoss waterfall in Iceland. It will, if their Brixton shows are anything to go by, be seriously beautiful.

Night + Day will take place on 14-16 July, and although tickets are not yet available you can stay in the loop via The xx’s website.
