The xx – first anounced artists of Sunset Festival 2017


With The xx – one of the world’s most recognised British bands, highly regarded by music critics – Sunset Festival starts announcing the program of coming Summer.

This Summer in Sigulda Castle at least 4 worldwide artist shows are being planned, in each will perform local and foreign new artists as well. The next big names will be announced on Friday, March 3rd.
 
This will be the second year of Sunset Festival, but the origins of the festival are found in 2015, when jazz legend Richard Bona and extravagant British singer Roisin Murphy performed in Sigulda Castle.
 
Last Summer already two events with world-class artists took place in Sigulda Castle. A sold out first day on July 3rd with an Irish singer’s and songwriter’s Damien Rice’s performance on top, and July 6st British rock band James were gathering Sigulda city resdidents and guests. In both festival days there were local artists performing as well, a few of them from Sigulda city, for example singer and songwriter Kārlis Kazāks and bands Neon Saturdays and ZigZag.
 
Latvia Sunset Festival stands out from other festivals with an emphasis on the enjoyment of music in an unusual atmosphere and high-quality entertainment to people of different ages.
 
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 Latvia). Song is included in the album I See You, which is the third album from the band. It was released on January 13th 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.
With their newest accomplishment gentle, R&B affected indie poprock, which has become the bands signature, supplemented richly with basses and house music beats. In a number of songs etherial guitar chords and as if  timidly vocals are replaced with very convincing performance.  It is reflected in music critics’ reviews which were laudatory about band’s style and originality in the beginning, but now they are talking about the trio affecting  music development globally.
