North by Northeast (NXNE) has officially kicked off in Toronto.
This year's gaming and music festival presented by Aurora runs from June 8th-17thacross a variety of venues across the city.
The festival has something for everyone, kicking off with the Game Land eSports events. Welcoming both amateur and professional players, the first day saw the consoles all set to free play before the competition begins June 9th. Can't make it but want to participate? Be sure to check out all the action on the NXNE Twitch channel.
The rest of the festival is set to bring some amazing music to Toronto. NXNE's Club Land Curator Series will feature over 100 bands hand-picked by some of Canada's top music leaders at 30 different shows. The best part? One wristband gets you into all the shows for an amazing week of club-hopping.
This year's NXNE ends with a FREE three-day music festival at Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square known as Festival Village. From June 15th-17th music fans will be able to take in acts such as Chrvches, Azealia Banks, Tinashe, Jazz Cartier, Big Freedia, Yungblud, and Lights.
Fortunately, we'll have Brenda Gomes out all week to capture all the action from this year's NXNE. Be sure to check back for more!
