NXNE Announces 2018 dates and returns to Yonge-Dundas

North by Northeast (NXNE) is pleased to announce the 2018 edition will be held June 8-17. Now in its 24th year, the festival returns to Toronto’s downtown epicenter, Yonge-Dundas with free outdoor programming June 15-17. NXNE will transform Yonge Street into a festival village throughout the weekend to host free concerts, NXNE talk sessions and comedy shows.

In addition, the festival will expand the Club Land – Curator Series throughout the week. Leading Canadian musicians will host and curate showcases across the city at dozens of venues and clubs.

Game Land kicks off NXNE returning June 8-10, and will take place in a unique Toronto venue. The three-day live eSports extravaganza will have hundreds in attendance and tens of thousands viewing online via NXNE’s Twitch channel.

“We at North by Northeast have always loved presenting amazing new music at Canada’s most exciting intersection, free of charge. And NXNE’s fans and supporters have been clear they love shows on Yonge Street, even miss them. So we’re bringing the music back to the centre of the city, bigger and better,” says Michael Hollett, NXNE Founder.

Stay tuned for additional announcements regarding NXNE in the upcoming months.
