The XX announce full run of headline shows to kick off 2018!


Fans of electronic moodsters The XX would have been very disappointed to hear that their recent Splendour headline set would be their only Australian show in 2017- imagine, your only shot at seeing the Mercury prize winning band play tracks from their new album I See You was amongst a sea of pilled up festival dudes in the freezing depths of winter. Many of us just crossed our fingers and waited for better news.

Well, the wait is over! The XX are not only coming back to our shores for a run of proper headline shows but even better it’s smack bang in the middle of Summer (or late spring, if you’re from Melbourne).

With a new album in tow, some killer supports (Earl Sweatshirt & Kelela), and a fresh lease on life after an extended break to do the solo thang, it’s sure to be one dang heck of an experience.

You can buy tickets on Friday 25 Aug (12 noon local time), but if you’re smart, you’ll sign up for the pre-sale at to get access to early bird tix and bragging rights amongst your less cool friends.
