Canada’s premiere music and gaming festival returns to the streets of Toronto June 7 - June 16, 2019
NXNE returns this June with more curators, more club shows, and an expanded FESTIVAL VILLAGE that will include four stages for live performances. 2019’s CLUB LAND and FESTIVAL VILLAGE will offer audiences a diverse slate of globally recognized and emerging hip-hop, indie rock and pop acts at over 20 of the top music venues in Toronto. NXNE will kick off the 10-day festival on June 7 with a jam-packed schedule of live musical acts that will ignite the spirit of summer in the city.  

NXNE CLUB LAND will continue to offer programming that represents the diverse communities of Toronto through its Curator Series and other notable shows. It will feature shows programmed by leading Canadian musicians that highlight emerging artist showcases, art installations, late night DJ sets and after parties, all in the city’s most cherished venues. The Curator Series aims to encourage music fans of all genres to club hop across the city and witness their favourite artists to transform the showcase experience. A low price wristband secures priority admission to all shows. Wristbands are priced at 1995 prices, $29, the same as in NXNE’s first year, and allows fans access to over 30 shows.

Featured CLUB LAND acts include: hip hop artist Haviah Mighty as well as experimental music performance group Persons, acoustic rocker Owen, punk infused hip hop Just John x Dom Dias and new age musician Nick Schofield.  Indie act Most People, pop artist Syngja and fierce punk band Dishpit will all be a part of the CLUB LAND experience.

In addition to NXNE’s CLUB LAND Curator Series, highlight shows will include indie emo rock band American Football supported by alternative bedroom-pop act Ellis as well as an All Ages show with Chicago based rapper Cupcakke at The Phoenix Concert Theatre.

A $29 wristband gets people access into all the CLUB LAND shows. Wristbands can be purchased online at nxne.com

This year, in honour of its 25th anniversary year, NXNE expands FESTIVAL VILLAGE (June 14 – 16) to span over half-a-kilometre, packed with free entertainment, activations and more. The growing festival will include four performance areas for all festival-goers to enjoy for free throughout the festival including newly added Queen St. Stage presented by Slaight Music.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements soon about Festival Village Headliners, Game Land, NXNE Talks, and more.
