The xx have just revealed that they will be spending 18 days in Manchester in 2013 as part of the city’s International Festival.

This means that Manchester festival-goers will be treated to an exclusive series of shows from the group, each limited to a capacity of no more than 100. Since The xx’s soft and subtle songs were created with intimacy in mind, it’s a fitting concept, and likely to be the ideal way to catch them live.

Tickets for the cosy shows will go on sale in January. Find out more here.
