The xx cancel the Iceland leg of their Night + Day festival

The festival site has been designated "endangered".
Earlier this year, The xx brought their Night + Day festival to Brixton Academy, with several nights of festivities that included sets from Sampha, Kelela, Robyn, Floating Points and loads more.

The event was going to head to Iceland next month, but has now been cancelled due to the festival’s location having “recently been added to the Environment Agency of Iceland’s list of endangered areas.”

“There is simply not enough time for the promoters to ensure that the event will have no impact at all on the site,” a statement explains. “The promoters have been working non-stop to secure another location but regrettably there is nowhere suitable that can host the festival with such short notice.”

Refunds are going out to ticket holders. Read the full statement here.
