INDIE stars The xx have announced they will curate a surprise show at Hatfield House this summer.
The former Mercury Award winning three-piece will headline Saturday, June 22’s Night + Day concert.
The show will feature global superstar Beyonce’s sister Solange as special guest.
Polica, Kindness and Mount Kimbie will also appear in the grounds of the Hertfordshire stately home.
The show only came about after Transport for London cancelled Piccadilly and District Line services on that day – rendering a previous venue at Osterley Park, near Richmond, unviable.
Oddly the gig is listed as taking place at London Hatfield House and follows The xx events in Lisbon and Berlin.
In a statement, the band said: “We’re really sorry for any trouble this causes anyone, but we made sure that the new venue is even better.
“We’re excited that we can now also announce Solange for the main stage as well as Jamie xx, Benji B and Sampha as the first DJs announced in the Bandstand.
“All ticket holders will receive an email shortly with details on exchanges/refunds.”
Tickets are on sale now and cost £48.50.
