NXNE ANNOUNCES 2018 CLUB LAND CURATORS AND GAME LAND
NXNE announces the 2018 Club Land Curators and second edition of Game Land. The Club Land Curator series returns from June 10-16 at participating venues across Toronto’s downtown core with Game Land once again kicking off the festival June 8-10, at The Concert Hall (888 Yonge St).
“We’re thrilled to have top Canadian artists share the spotlight with up-and-coming acts that they believe in. We think this is a great refresh for the club hopping wristband that has been an essential part of NXNE since 1995,” states Michael Hollett, NXNE Founder / President.
The Club Land Curators Series, programmed by leading Canadian musicians, has expanded with over 30 shows throughout the festival week. Club crawlers can look forward to a diverse range of programming including art installations, emerging artist showcases, late night DJ sets and after parties, all in Toronto’s most cherished venues. The Curator series aims to encourage music fans alike to club hop across the city and witness their favourite artists transform the showcase experience. Get priority access to all shows with an affordable NXNE wristband. For tickets visit here.
