WHEN IS NXNE 2019?

NXNE 2019 runs Friday, June 7 to Sunday, June 16.


WHERE IS IT?

NXNE takes place across the city of Toronto, one of the greatest cities in the world. The epicentre of the festival is Yonge Dundas Square in the heart of the city, some call it the 6's Times Square. We shut down two blocks of Canada's longest street. We also program in Toronto's top live music venues as well as non-traditonal music spaces. NXNE has featured bands: at the airport, in parks, on streetcars, a ferry boat and much more.

In 2018, we created the NXNE Festival Village on Yonge Street, closing down two blocks of the biggest Street in the world. NXNE presented great acts, for free, June 15 – 17,  2018 including: Chvrches, Jazz Cartier, Azealia Banks, Lights, Big Freedia, U.S. Girls, Yungblud, Cadence Weapon, Torres, Seon Leon, Alx Veliz, New Swears, and many more.
