Are you wondering what Toronto concerts you should experience this summer? Then you’ve probably heard of a little festival known as NXNE. North By North East is an annual Toronto concert series that features a wide array of bands and artists from across the globe and from the country we call home. For the first time, NXNE will host a “festival within a festival” experience at Toronto’s Port Lands with two days of bands, food trucks, beer tents and so much more you’ll absolutely love.

The Port Lands venue, located at 51 Commissioners Street, will feature a bunch of talented artists during the final days of NXNE.

Saturday features an alternative and indie rock line-up with Father John Misty headlining. The night will feature a solid roster of Canadian bands like Mother Mother, Dan Mangan, The Zolas, Born Ruffians, HIGHS, Land of Talk and The Devin Cuddy Band.
