Toronto’s NXNE Port Lands festival has announced their initial 2017 lineup, with Passion Pit, Tyler the Creator and Post Malone headlining.
Bleachers, Sleigh Bells, The Soul Rebels featuring Talib Kweli, Twin Peaks, Cold Specks, MUNA and Son Little will also play.
Taking place June 23 to June 25 on the shores of Lake Ontario in downtown Toronto, NXNE Port Lands is the latest appendage of SXSW’s ever-growing northern cousin. NXNE threw their first Port Lands festival last year, and 2017 sees an expansion to three days.
NXNE President Michael Hollett says fans can expect “major enhacements” to the festival grounds. In addition to a comedy tent, NXNE Port Lands will also add carnival rides and art installations.
More than 20 additional artists will be added to the NXNE Port Lands lineup in early April. Details in regards to NXNE’s Club Land, Game Land and Future Land programming will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Tickets to NXNE Port Lands are on sale now and start at $125 for a three-day pass.
