The XX – John Peel Tent – Saturday – 9.00pm
259 DAYS TO GO
So I was looking forward to The XX and they didn’t disappoint. They are certainty not the normal NME type indie rock, but what they do they do so well, that the moshpit rock that is missing is not missed.
The highlight for many was Florence coming on and singing with them on Who’s Got the Love, but it was a bit crap really.
I would love to see The XX in a intimate venue but that’s probably not going to be possible now.
Anyway it was a great way to spend an hour before the headline act of Saturday night and expect them back in 2011 in a even higher placed position.
