Celebrating 22 years as Toronto’s essential music and arts festival, NORTH BY NORTHEAST (NXNE), taking place June 15-19, 2016, is adding a major outdoor festival experience at the Port Lands.
On June 17-18, the Port Lands, located at Cherry and Commissioners Street, will be the home of a major festival hub that will reflect the spirit of NXNE.
The ticketed “festival within a festival” will feature live music from discovery bands, artists on the cusp of glory, and stellar headliners creating the soundtrack to this immersive experience that will include art installations, a convoy of food trucks and you-had-to-be-there moments in a convenient location.
In addition to the new two-day outdoor experience, NXNE will continue to program events in key Toronto clubs and venues, in partnership with Collective Concerts, such as Lee’s Palace, The Mod Club, and Danforth Music Hall from June 15-19.
Band submissions for NXNE 2016 are open until April 14 and it’s free to apply! Bands of all genres are welcome.
