NXNE builds Festival Village on Yonge street


Yonge Street is the biggest street in the world --Google it -- and NXNE is creating the biggest party ever held there Friday through Sunday, June 15 -17. We're shutting down Yonge to cars and opening it up for three days of fun with great live music, hilarious stand up comedy, a free gaming station, cool activations, great community group information areas and, a beer garden in Yonge Dundas Square. And it's all free.

We're putting our main music stage on Yonge Street just south of Dundas facing east into Yonge Dundas Square. and top acts include: Chrvches, Tinashe, Jazz Cartier, Azealia Banks, Lights, Big Freedia, U.S. Girls, Yungblud, Robert DeLong,Torres, Cadence Weapon, Alx Veliz, Seon Leon, New Swears, Strands, Skye Wallace, Nate Husser, Kamikazee Girls, A is for Arrows and more. Music starts at 4 pm Friday and fun starts noon Saturday and Sunday, all till 11 pm. 

You want a laugh? Take a break from the tunes? Wander down Yonge near Shuter and experience the hilarity in NXNE's laff-tastic Comedy Tent programmed by the funny folks at Toronto's legendary Comedy Bar. There will be non-stop laughs all three Festival Village days as Canada's best comedy talent stands up on Yonge.
