Let The Party Begin! NXNE Blog, Pt. 1Monday, June 13th, 2011
Greetings from Toronto!
In the warm city air there hangs an unmistakable buzz and energetic anticipation for this week’s coming festivities. Yes, music lovers, it’s time for North by Northeast (NXNE) 2011, and with a killer lineup of up-and-comers (Kidstreet, Land of Talk), seasoned indie greats (Chad VanGaalen, Stars), reunions (Rusty, anyone?), and downright legends (Brian Wilson, Evan Dando), just to name a mere few, 2011 is promising to be a huge year for Toronto’s biggest summer music festival.
NXNE has always prided itself on featuring a smorgasbord of great music, striking a balance between propping up our own Canadian artists and playing host to the finest musical international imports. This year is definitely no exception.
