North by Northeast (NXNE) 2015: 1st Round Music Programming Announcement

The FuseBox Radio Broadcast/ family has been a part of Canada's North by Northeast (NXNE) for the past few years on the performance and press coverage ends and we have always had a great time checking out their music, film, comedy, interactive and art programming.

The diverse Canadian festival (based in Toronto, ON) can basically be thought of by folks in the U.S. as the up-North version of South by Southwest (SXSW) in terms of the high quality and eclecticness of acts.

Going down this year from June 17 - 21, 2015, the programming on the music end is already in full swing with an diverse and dope set of international independent and major label talent in the Hip-Hop, Rock, EDM and Pop genres, including acts like Action Bronson, Ibeyi, Vince Staples, Blonde Redhead and plenty more.  

With at least 2 - 3 more rounds of act announcements coming down the pipeline in the upcoming months, it's shaping up to be a pretty fly event so far.

Check out some of our NXNE 2012, 2013 & 2014 photo, video & written coverage here on the website and hit up North by Northeast at their official websites below for more updates on updated music acts, programming, ticket prices (which are literally some of the best I've personally ever seen for a multi-day festival) and more:
