2013 Partnership Opportunities
NXNE festivals and conference June 10–16 2013
A massive week-long celebration of new music, film, comedy, and interactive media, the
North by Northeast festival (NXNE) is the most anticipated summer event of its kind in
Canada – and an essential destination for youth-focused experiential brand integration.
NXNE 2012 was the best-ever edition of the festival, marking a 15% increase in
overall attendance. Over 330,000 people were entertained by NXNE over the week,
with more than 130,000 fans flooding Yonge-Dundas Square for monumental free
concerts by international headliners The Flaming Lips, Raekwon and Ghostface
Killah, Bad Religion and Matthew Good.
Every year, NXNE works with innovative brands and plays host to many of the
summer’s leading brand activations. And each year NXNE delivers some of the most
impactful brand integrations within the world of live entertainment.
