North By Northeast (NXNE), Toronto’s longstanding downtown music event unveiled its first round of performers to kick off the summer at its 2nd annual NXNE Port Lands showcase taking place from June 23rd to June 25th, 2017. Headliners for the 3-day festival include chart-topping indietronica act Passion Pit – a treat to hear welcomed back into the Ontario festival circuit after cancelling their Wayhome Music & Arts Festival debut in 2015 due to illness. Multi-talented rapper and producer Tyler the Creator and genre-bending hip hop artist Post Malone also headline the roster of trendy and emerging talent.
