NXNE: North by Northeast Music & Film Festival
NXNE is a raging annual 10-day summer festival and conference, featuring music, gaming, comedy, interactive and more at this packed cultural explosion. The U.K. Guardian says "NXNE has crowned itself Toronto's leading music event." NXNE celebrates its 23rd year in 2017 and takes over Toronto with showcases, panels, parties, installations, and more. NXNE includes a major three-day music festival that also features comedy, food, art installations and midway rides and games at NXNE's Port Lands festival site. NXNE Game Land will present Canada's largest-ever, free outdoor e-Sports competition at Yonge Dundas Square. We take over Toronto's best live music clubs to present our must-see Club Land series of emerging music with extended last calls at your favourite sweaty club/bar/pop up venue. We are partners with our friends in Austin, Texas at SXSW. NXNE was founded in 1994 and when you get to know us better, you can call us Northby.
