North by Northeast has released their first 2017 artist announcement and it’s a good start. Now entering its 22nd year, the annual Toronto music festival returns to the Port Lands with Passion Pit, Tyler, the Creator and Post Malone in the headlining position for fthis venue. Also included in today’s announcement, Bleachers, Sleigh Bells, The Soul Rebels Ft. Talib Kweli, Twin Peaks, Cold Specks, Muna, and Son Little and a promise of 20+ artists to come.
Festival dates are June 23 to 25th, early bird pricing is up and tickets are on sale! NXNE is using RFID wristbands and we’re serious when we say you should really consider the VIP package. There’s nothing like front row access and VIP bathrooms.
Other highlights of this festival, the Club Land venues, Game Land featuring video gaming and E-Sports, the comedy tent, art installations, midway rides and of course food vendors.
NXNE is one of our favourite festivals, partly because it’s on home turf and partly because it includes free shows that all of you can see. Stay tuned for more artist announcements.
EDIT -Tyler the Creator has dropped out and been replaced by Kaytranada.
