This Friday, North by Northeast (NXNE) – the sister festival to Austin’s renowned SXSW – kicks off in Toronto, Canada. The festival will take over the entire city from this Friday, June 13, 2014 through Sunday, June 22, 2014. Similar to its southern relative, NXNE will host a series of screenings, panels, parties, art installations, and of course music showcases. Chris Clark, NXNE Marketing & Digital Content Manager states, “From free shows at Yonge-Dundas Square to extended 4AM last calls at some of our favorite sweaty clubs [and] bars, NXNE is the premier destination for bands, filmmakers, innovators, funny people, artists, and most importantly: fans of all of the above.”
In partnership with the festival, Life + Times unveils an exclusive NXNE playlist. Chris further adds, “This playlist is a broad cross-section of some the great talent we’re fortunate enough to be working with this year as we celebrate our 20th anniversary in support of today’s most exciting new music.”
