NXNE 2012 Toronto: Must See

NXNE (June 11 – 17), now in its 18th year, is a week of 650+ musical acts, dozens of independent films and interactive presentations at over 40 venues across Toronto.  Here’s what we’re most excited to see.


Raekwon and Ghostface Killah
Yes, the Ice Cream man is coming! Two of the members of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan will be performing live at Yonge-Dundas Square. With almost 20 years in the game, Wu-Tang is a name synonymous with rap and they offer an unforgettable performance wherever they show up.

Matthew Good
