Now in its 20th year, North by Northeast Festivals and Conference (NXNE) has become the Canadian festival destination for emerging artists and major-label headliners; filmmakers; hilarious comedians; visual, sound, and other artists; and innovators bridging the gap between technology and the arts. Seen as the most anticipated summer music event in Canada, NXNE Music, NXNE Film, NXNE Interactive, NXNE Art, and NXNE Comedy are an essential gathering for artists, industry, and fans. We’re based in Toronto, but bring a global perspective to our programming. NXNE’s mission is to:
- Provide a forum for the best new music, in which fans can catch emerging artists – tomorrow’s stars – and today’s most popular acts at intimate club venues.
- Screen the year’s most exciting music-themed films.
- Explore and develop common ground between the creative industries and the interactive world.
- Present Toronto with an annual marquee tourist destination festival by showcasing international headline performers at huge free outdoor concerts.
In all, NXNE runs 10 days and nights, draws over 350,000 attendees, and generates an annual economic impact of approximately $50 million on the city of Toronto.
