Ah, Live in Bellwoods. A time of lounging in the sun and listening to always memorable and often unexpected sets from your favourite bands. A time when everyone at NXNE, wristband or no, ID or no, can gather in the park and enjoy awesome tunes and each other. This year, the totally free performance series is going to be better than ever, with tons of great bands already lined up, and more to be announced. 

Presented by Humble Empire and Young Lions Music Club, there will be amazing performances from local and visiting bands every day of the festival. You can slurp ice cream, sip iced coffee, or bring some contraband Caesars to help heal your festival hangover. Great Heart is an apt re-name for the fest: there’s no place where the heart of what NXNE is about beats stronger. People coming together, from near and far, to enjoy great music in a place they love. See you there for the already-awesome line up below. More to be announced!
