We won’t be going to NXNE this year, as it’s a little far away from us and we’re hoping to make it to Bonnaroo, but this sounds like a pretty cool music festival! And if you’re a student, you get a pretty considerable discount, so that’s always cool. So take note, kids on Degrassi Street!
NXNE (North by North-East), Canada’s #1 festival destination for the best new bands, dynamic music films, and compelling sessions with the most forward-thinking interactive media innovators, today announced further details for the 2011 edition of NXNE, taking place in Toronto from June 13-19.
NXNE alumni include Iggy and The Stooges, Feist, Kid Cudi, Les Savy Fav, Sufjan Stevens, Matt and Kim, Black Lips, Best Coast, Wavves, Thee Oh Sees, Dinosaur Jr., Japandroids, The Raveonettes, Broken Social Scene, Mudhoney and thousands more.
Building on the sold-out success of last year’s inaugural conference, NXNE Interactive returns with a new structure featuring leading-edge workshops, panel sessions, and inspiring keynote presentations. For musicians and filmmakers, tech entrepreneurs, marketing professionals, social media users and anyone looking to get the most from new technology, tools, and trends, NXNE Interactive is now a unique conference of ideas bringing music and film into the digital world.

Playing NXNE is more important than ever for artists looking to reach thousands of new fans, meet key industry people, and take their careers to the next level. NXNE 2010 showcasing artists Warpaint, Big Freedia, Zola Jesus, Indian Jewelry, PS I Love You, and Best Coast made many international music blogs’ year-end “best-of” lists and are now breaking big worldwide.
