When is NXNE 2017?

June 16 - 25, 2017, coming up fast.

Where is NXNE?

NXNE takes place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, one of the leading live music cities in the world. Our multi-venue event includes: Toronto's best live music clubs, The Port Lands music festival site, E-Sports at Yonge-Dundas Square in the centre of the city, Toronto's Times Square.

I want to volunteer. How can I go about it?

What a lovely idea. You'll have fun, make new friends, make important connections in the music industry and get free stuff. We'll have volunteer info up here soon. We love our volunteers!

I want to advertise on your website/in your gig guide. What do I do?

This is something smart people say. Please get in touch with nxne@milkamili.com.

Who's playing?

This year's NXNE Port Lands music festival features: Passion Pit, Tyler the Creator, Post Malone, Bleachers, Sleigh Bells, The Soul Rebels featuring Talib Kweli, Twin Peaks, Cold Specks, Muna, Son Little and dozens more. NXNE's Club Land festival will feature the best up-and-coming bands as curated by some of Canada's best musicians

.

Where are the Port Lands?

Just east of downtown Toronto, as close to Lake Ontario as you can get without falling in. Just past the Distillery District and south. Where those giant white abandoned industrial silos by the Cherry Street Bridge are, you can cross the bridge to enter to NXNE Port Lands.

It's just south of the part of the Gardiner Expressway that should have been torn down and where it curves to become the Don Valley Parkway. It's where the biggest bike paths in Toronto meet: one north-south, one east-west. It's on the way to Cherry Beach, across the street from Toronto's glamest, biggest new venue, Rebel; the former Sound Academy but way shiner. It's also across from T&T Market and just north of a working drawbridge. It's where Cirque de Soleil pitches their tent in the summer and some gasp and are charmed by wonderment.

There's regular bus service, plenty of parking and it is one of the most bike friendly sites in town with free bike valet parking during the festival.

By TTC bus, from the west, take the 172B Cherry St bus from King or St. Andrews to Commissioners St. Coming from the east, take the 72C bus from Pape Station to Cherry and Commissioners St. There is tons pf parking for cars. Last year, we had a free boat shuttle from Harbourfront to NXNE Port Lands.

Artist FAQs

Should I email (insert name & email of person on the NXNE contact list) to ask them to book my band? NXNE takes a very limited number of unsolicited bands, if you think yours should be one of those, send your particulars to info@nxne.com.

Yonge-Dundas Square

What is a Yonge-Dundas Square?

It's a big public space at Yonge and Dundas in the heart of the city, in the middle of downtown Toronto (Dundas Subway). It's also called YDS, some claim it's Toronto's Times Square and we regularly create special NXNE events including mega concerts by Iggy and the Stooges, the Flaming Lips, Run the Jewels and many more. We added a live video gaming in 2016 on the big screen and on dozens of consoles and computers. We are presenting the biggest free, outdoor live E-Sports event ever in Canada in 2017 to kick off NXNE the weekend of June 16 -18.

I hear the shows at YDS are free. That's cool, but what's the catch - how much are they?

They're free. Really.

Are they all ages?

Yes. Fun for the whole family. Also free.
