This year, NXNE and Budweiser have teamed up to bring concert goers the “What’s Brewing at NXNE” festival Club Land series, curated by Canada’s music leaders including Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent, Shad, Raina Douris of CBC Radio 2, and Leah Fay of July Talk.
Blunt Chunks, Blue Sky Miners, The Anti-Queens, and Olivia and the Creepy Crawlies are some of the performers playing the series, which will take over venues across Toronto from June 19-22 during NXNE.
Club Land wristbands are on sale now for $20.00 at nxne.com, and can be purchased in-person at all Club Land shows. See the full schedule below.
In addition to the Club Land curated series, Toronto favourites Hey! DW, DJ Betti Ford, and #ENTERTAINMENT have been announced as support for the NXNE Launch Party June 19 at The Phoenix Concert Theatre.

I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
