The last couple of years have been rough for Toronto’s NXNE. After years of being scattered about the downtown core, it spent the last couple of years in the Portlands. This, so far, hasn’t been a strategy that has been good for attendance. Crowds were down for the second year in a row.
But NXNE has seen the light.
When the 24th annual event runs June 8-17, 2018, everything will return to download with Yonge-Dundas Square as its epicentre. Between the June 15-17, parts of Yonge will be turned into a festival village that will feature free concerts, talk sessions, and sets by comedians.
And NXNE is wisely embracing eSports with Game Land, a three-day live eSports event that will run June 8-10. This will be a huge thing, both in person and online.
More details on NXNE 2018 coming soon.
