NXNE is pleased to announce the festival dates for 2019.
The festival will again run for a full 10 days, this year starting Friday, June 7 through Sunday, June 16.
“It takes more than a week to fit in all the action that is NXNE” says the festival’s founder Michael Hollett. “We added many great new elements last year and NXNE’s dynamic audience wants even more, so we’re bringing it in 2019.”
NXNE will again launch with its Game Land, eSports Competition Friday, through Sunday, June 7 – 9.
The Club Land series takes over many of Toronto’s top live music venues for NXNE’s full 10 days with many venues having extended last call till 4 am. The Club Land shows are programmed by Canada’s top musicians as well as leading music Tastemakers, and accessible with a $29 priority admission. Look for even more than the 20 musician Curators from 2018 and many more Tastemakers including international showcases.
NXNE will again be closing down two blocks of Yonge Street to car traffic and opening it up for fun with the creation of Festival Village from Dundas to Queen, Friday June 14 to Sunday, June 16.
“NXNE’s Yonge Street reboot and the creation of the three day Festival Village has been wildly popular. We are bringing it back even bigger and better with more stages and more free entertainment. With over half a kilometer of activation space the only limit to creating Toronto’s biggest free party is our imagination,” says Hollett.
In addition to the Festival Village’s Main stage, NXNE on Yonge also includes: a free Comedy Tent, gaming stations, a beer and spirits garden, additional music stages and much more.
Stay tuned for tons of news from NXNE including: festival performers lineup, Club Land Curators and Tastemakers announcements, tournament games and details for NXNE Game Land and much more.
See you next June 7 – 16 all over Toronto.
