Now in its 16th year, The North by Northeast Music & Film Festival and Conference (NXNE) is Canada’s #1 showcase for the best new music and music-related films. For seven days and nights this June, NXNE takes over Toronto with the best entertainment, the freshest music-related ideas, and a brand-new interactive digital media conference — all within a few km of each other. Last year, over 250,000 fans, artists, and industry pros experienced NXNE, generating an economic impact on Toronto of over $34 million.
The music festival gives over 650 local, national and international artists the chance to showcase for thousands of fans, agents, talent buyers, media, promoters, labels and management companies at a variety of essential downtown venues. While many NXNE performers have hit the fest’s 40 + club stages on their way to major international breakthroughs, other high-profile acts join the fray to helping make NXNE essential, fresh and eclectic.
