NXNE shuts down two blocks of Canada's longest street every June to create the NXNE Yonge Street Festival Village as part of their 10 day annual festival of music, gaming, comedy and more.

NXNE Festival Village takes over the street from Dundas to queen

NXNE takes over Toronto's Yonge Street every June, from Yonge Dundas Square, Canada's Times Square, south to Queen for two blocks of free entertainment, activations and more. NXNE shuts down the street and sets up its main music stage on Yonge facing into the city's celebrated Square where a beer garden helps beat the heat.  A Comedy Tent at the south end of the Festival Village brackets the fun and gaming stations, sponsor activations, buskers, community group information booths and much more keep the Village pumping throughout NXNE's three days on Yonge.

 

NXNE's 2018 Festival Village headliners included: Chvrches, Jazz Cartier, Tinsahe, Lights, Big Freedia, Azealia Banks, Yungblud, U.S Girls, Cadence Weapon, Alx Velez, Seon Leon and many more as over 50,000 attended the Festival Village alone. Previous NXNE Yonge Street headliners have included: Iggy and the Stooges, Flaming Lips, St. Vincent, Run the Jewels, New Pornographers, Spoon, Mac de Marco and dozens more -- all for free.

 

Watch for lineup announcements and 2019 Festival dates soon.
