Organizers of the 23rd Annual North by Northeast festival (NXNE) is expanding to 10 days, with a selection of music, gaming, comedy, and more from June 16 – 25, 2017 in Toronto.

NXNE will return to the Port Lands for three days from June 23 – 25, 2017. The NXNE Port Lands site was debuted at this year’s festival and in 2017 will include two main stages, art installations, sponsor activations, and comfortable places to relax between acts, as well as a comedy tent, and carnival rides.

“In it’s first year the NXNE Port Lands saw thousands of attendees in two days,” says Michael Hollett, president and managing director of NXNE. “Our growth and expansion for 2017 are based on the success of last year with cool programming from indie rock to hip hop to soul and much more each day.”

NXNE Game Land will kick off the 2017 Festival at Yonge-Dundas Square with a live e-Sports competition, new video game demos, interactive activations, and live music from June 16 -18, 2017. In 2016, NXNE Game Land saw 25,000 visitors over three days.

From June 19 – 25, 2017 NXNE will host hundreds of new and established artists at over a dozen venues across the city for NXNE Club Land, including The Danforth Music Hall, The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, and Adelaide Hall.
