The xx have announced they'll be curating a series of special shows in beautiful locations next summer.

"Night + Day is a series of events, curated by us, to start in the summer of 2013," says the band. "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."

The line-ups for the shows are yet to be announced, but you can buy tickets to the events from Friday 14th December (from here). An exclusive mailing list pre-sale for Night + Day tickets go on sale Thursday 13th December at 10am (sign up to the mailing list at here before 8pm on Wednesday 12th December to get your code).
