North By Northeast (NXNE) turns 20 next year and they have announced that the festival will expand to ten days (June 13-22, 2014), creating their biggest festival to date, with new collaborations with major international partners. NXNE Film will kick off June 13-15, NXNE Interactive will run June 16-20, while NXNE Music will anchor the festival June 18-22.
For next year’s festival, NXNE will collaborate with media renegades, VICE to re-create their hugely successful SXSW VICELAND project by transforming a section of the Toronto’s downtown core with blockbusting performances and attractions. NXNE will also team up with avant-underground music broadcast stream Boiler Room to stage the best in underground music with their exclusive signature showcases. We love the vibe at the festival every year, and look forward to what Vice and Boiler Room will bring to the festival.
“We are so excited to be working with these amazing media partners to amp up what NXNE has been doing for the past 20 years: presenting the latest and greatest in new music. I know what VICE and Boiler Room will bring to the festival will be nothing short of spectacular”, said Christopher Roberts, NXNE Festival Director.
Also new for 2014, festival-goers can experience NXNE 2014 with the all encompassing Platinum pass, or with stream-specific wristbands for either music, interactive, film, or comedy. NXNE Art, returning for its second year, will be accessible with any wristband or pass. For more information and prices, visit nxne.com/tickets.
