London trio organising Night + Day events in Portugal, Berlin and the UK next May and June

The xx have announced that they will be curating three one-day events, Night + Day, in Portugal, Germany and the UK next year.

They will headline each show, as well as deciding on the rest of the line-up and the amenities, even down to the catering facilities - here are the dates:

MAY 2013
Sun 5 - Lisbon Jardim da Torres de Belëm, Lisbon, Portugal
Sat 18 - Berlin Spreepark, Berlin, Germany

JUNE 2013
Sun 23 - Osterley Park & House, Isleworth, London

Talking about the event, which, with the UK date, sees the band playing their largest show to date, The xx say: "Night + Day is a series of events, curated by us, to start in the summer of 2013. We searched high and low for unique and beautiful locations to stage these shows and picked the artists that we most respect and admire to join us. The events will run from early afternoon, with some of our favourite music (and food) to take you from day into night."

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, December 14, but there'll be a pre-sale from 10am on Thursday, December 13, for mailing list subscribers - sign up here before 8pm tomorrow to receive a unique code for access to these early tickets.
