Use this table to find discussions on official NXNE shows. The most recently talked about shows will bubble to the top here. We built this because we're still working on building our search bar (oh, the joys of being a startup).
This table only covers Wednesday June 18 to Sunday June 22. We will try to keep it as up to date as possible.
Apparently Mio is converting a Queen Street streetcar into a venue for three nights. It definitely sounds cool, and we're sure it'll be quite the sight to see from the outside... but how this actually plays out for the performers and patrons is somewhat TBD.
The sound quality will be an interesting challenge, and once assumes that the seats will have to stay (but who knows? A gutted street car would definitely allow for more people, but there's gotta be weight regulations, etc.)
Ventilation is another question. Also, escape options if the conditions are sub-optimal.
We hope that one of our users does get curious enough to give this contraption a whirl. If only for the story.
There will be many unofficial and surprise concerts during NXNE. So far, only five have been officially documented, but we'll keep our eyes on the social media streams in an attempt to find more and post what information we have here.
The following shows are deemed "Secret" or "Special guest" - since they're publicly scheduled it's more of a mystery than a secret... but hey, better than nothing:
Clearly Tattoo likes to keep secrets. Also, all these times are all "night of," not literally 1AM of that day (so go on Saturday NIGHT if you see Saturday @ 1AM).
The Saturday (June 21) events at the Great Hall seem to be in a bit of a conflict. The official NXNE site has only five daytime acts, though things like do416 reference an Ancient Ocean Showcase. We had picked up bands like Black Walls, Huren and Perfect Pussy slated to play this day as well. The official schedule is probably the safest bet... we will be eager to hear of any updates.
