The xx were one of the most in-demand acts in Australia around Splendour time, and now the headliners are making their way back for three big shows next year to quench the thirst of anyone who missed out.

Better yet, they’ll have some awesome support acts on board, with Kelela and Earl Sweatshirt making for a gig you’ll really want to get down early for.

The all-ages shows will continue the Splendour vibes by taking place on outdoor stages, and they’ll all be all-ages too – plus, The xx will be donating a dollar from each ticket to PLUS1’s local LGBTQI+ programs.

Aside from their Splendour appearance, they haven’t been to Australia since 2013, and a lot has happened since then, not least the release of their new record I See You earlier this year.

We recently heard from The xx in a different form, as their hit single ‘Say Something Loving’ was covered by U.S. singer-songwriter Maggie Rogers on triple j’s Like A Version last week.

Check out The xx’s tour dates below, along with their latest single ‘I Dare You’.
