Now in its 17th year, North by Northeast Music Festival and Conference (NXNE) has become the Canadian festival destination for new and emerging talent—unsigned bands, indie favourites, and major-label headlining artists alike. Seen as the most anticipated summer music event in Canada, NXNE Music, NXNE Film, and NXNE Interactive are an essential gathering for artists, industry, and fans.

We’re based in Toronto, but bring a global perspective to our programming. NXNE’s mission is to

  • provide a forum for the best new music, in which fans can catch emerging artists – tomorrow’s stars – and today’s most popular acts at intimate club venues
  • screen the year’s most exciting music-themed films
  • bridge the gap between the creative industries and the interactive world
  • present Toronto with an annual marquis tourist destination festival by showcasing international headline performers at huge free outdoor concerts

In all, NXNE runs 7 days and nights, draws 280,000 attendees, and generates an annual economic impact of more than $45 million.

    Speaking of NXNE- there is an INCREDIBLY helpful app for the festival it’s called MyNXNE available for free download from the apple app store. You can plan the entire festival to the ‘T’ and win stuff from Shweet.
    It’s cool.
