The xx Sunset Festival

Sunset Festival Estonia presents: The xx at Tallinna Lauluväljak in August

With The xx – one of the world’s most recognised British bands, highly regarded by music critics – Sunset Festival Estonia starts announcing the program of coming summer. The xx will perform at Tallinna Lauluväljak, Mere area on August 14th.

Sunset Festival is not a traditional festival in the Baltic countries, as consisting of several separate days throughout the summer season, in each of which performs at least one world-class international artist and a number of local or pan-Baltic scale artists.

The origins of the festival are found in 2015 in picturesque Sigulda castle ruins in Latvia, where two concerts took place - jazz legend Richard Bona and avant-garde Irish singer Roisin Murphy. Last summer there was a sold out show of Irish singer Damien Rice and British rock band James. This year, Sunset Festival will bring Evanescence to perform in Lithuania, Trakai Castle, on June 21st.

The first Sunset Festival Estonia act is currently one of the most exciting British band The xx. It is possible that a part of  ordinary listeners got to know electronic indie rock trio The xx only this winter with their fenomenally popular hit  On Hold (#1 UK, #2 USA; within TOP 10  in Baltics). Song is included in the album I See You, which is the third album from the band. It was released in January and it is already the second album from The xx which has climbed to the first position in the UK top. The same success was the first album xx in 2009, while the second one named Coexist (2012) was in the 5th place. In 2010 The xx received the prestige Mercury prize and in 2011 the band was nominated to BRIT award even in three categories.

Band’s style can be characterised as R&B affected indie poprock, which has become the bands signature, supplemented richly with basses and house music beats. Music critics consider the band as a stylish and original trio affecting  music development globally.
