Event Information:

 

North by Northeast (or NXNE) is an annual five-day live music and film festival and music conference in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, held each June. It began in 1994 and was patterned on the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. Each year, over 50 music venues host hundreds of bands from Canada, the United States and all over the world. Most music venues hosts five bands a night (9 p.m. onward), and the majority of the venues are grouped along downtown Toronto's Queen Street West, College Street, and the Bloor St. Annex.

The music conference at NXNE runs for three days at the Hyatt Regency on King (formerly the Holiday Inn) Hotel which serves as festival headquarters. NXNE delegates, panelists and bands playing the festival are able to participate in discussions, songwriter round tables, keynotes, demo listening and peer critiquing, legal clinics and the very helpful peer mentor sessions. The NXNE conference panels are held Friday and Saturday, and aim to foster a professional environment where musicians, artists and music industry reps can network and share ideas within their field.

A film festival was added in 2001 to run concurrently with the weekend music festival and industry conference, in conjunction with the National Film Board of Canada. Films are primarily music related documentaries and videos. NXNE also has a film showcase at the popular Hot Docs Film Festival. The conference also hosted the world premiere of Bruce McDonald's Broken Social Scene concert film, This Movie Is Broken, in 2010. North by Northeast is a volunteer driven music festival. The dedication and enthusiasm of NXNE volunteers caught the eye of Andrew Loog Oldham (the 2002 keynote speaker), who remarked that NXNE volunteers reminded him of why he originally entered the music business.

Lineup includes: Flaming Lips at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto, Bad Religion, Raekwon & Ghostface Killah, and Matthew Good. Other acts include Montreal, the Sadies & Andre Williams, Plants and Animals, the Men, Death Grips, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, 2:54, Bleached, Ceremony, Bran Van 3000, Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, Doldrums, Odonis Odonis, Mac DeMarco, Bass Drum of Death, Grass Widow, No Use for a Name, Hollerado, Porcelain Raft, Violens, Killer Mike, Eight and a Half, Purity Ring, Good Riddance, Action Bronson, the Black Belles, DZ Deathrays, and more. There will be roughly 650 bands in all.
