North by Northeast (NXNE) is Canada’s biggest and most important music festival. During the past decade, NXNE has developed a worldwide reputation for discovering and exposing new and emerging talent to music fans and industry professionals.

The Music Festival spans 3 nights of performances, with almost 400 showcasing bands at 30 live music venues in downtown Toronto. Club-hopping fans have had the opportunity to see break out performances from artists such as DKT/MC5, Sam Roberts, Feist, Ambulance Ltd, K-OS, Gord Downie, Black Rebel Motorcyle Club, Sufjan Stevens, and many, many more.

Make connections at the NXNE Industry Conference. Panels, roundtables, workshops, seminars, and always controversial speakers such as Patti Smith, Danny Goldberg, Steve Earle, Andrew Loog Oldham, John Lydon, and Wayne Kramer of DKT / MC5. It's the essential gathering for anyone looking to learn more about the music business, from a rookie manager to a grizzled rock veteran.

This year's festival will take place June 8, 9, 10, 2006. NXNE will accept submissions from artists of all genres except Classical and Jazz.

Please make sure your EPK is complete and up-to-date. EPKs that do not have audio clips, bios or photos will not be considered.

Please note: NXNE may request artists who make it past the first round of reviews to send a hard copy of their CD. Please do NOT send a CD unless asked by NXNE.
