Following the success of their seven-day “Night + Day” festival in South London’s Brixton Academy, the xx have released a documentary short film of the same name, providing private insight into the record-breaking music event.
“Night + Day” featured concerts, talks, film screenings, and community events – collaborators in the festival included Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine, Robyn, and Jehnny Beth of Savages, all of whom are included in the doc.
“Coming back to Brixton and just seeing how everyone just co-exists really beautifully, I love that,” says the xx’s Romy Croft in the film. “‘Night + Day’ was originally just an idea to do something a bit different, and a bit more than just a gig. To be honest, we didn’t know that these Brixton shows were going to become ‘Night + Day’ – it just sort of happened in an organic way because we were suddenly playing all these shows.”
