ENDLESS NXNE FUN IN THE SUN
Story by Laura Hermiston
There is more to NXNE than the concerts at night (see our top picks). However, if you are feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of events popping up on your Facebook list then take a look at our top choices for events to go to during the day. You will not be disappointed!
#1 Live in Bellwoods: Great Heart Festival
Young Lion’s Music Club and Humble Empire have set up a free and all ages event in Trinity Bellwoods park. It has bands that you should be as excited about as we are. Check it out from June 14-17 2pm-5pm. Listen to the mixtape they put together of some of the bands playing.
#2 Bruise Cruise Festival
Panache & M for Montreal present Bruise Cruise at NXNE. It is this Saturday afternoon, with acts such as DJ Jonathan Toubin, Hooded Fang, Teenanger, Mac DeMarco and Bleached. That’s right, bands playing on a boat!
