Tinashe to headline NXNE 2018

The pop star caps off the music fest's free Yonge-Dundas Square shows. Odd Future DJ Taco, Nyssa, Harrison, Hard To Kill and Shagabond also join the lineup


It took NXNE awhile to announce this year’s lineup, but now that it has there’s a deluge of names. The festival has already announced an impressive slate of headliners for its free Yonge-Dundas Square programming – Azealia Banks, Big Freedia, Chvrches and Jazz Cartier – on June 15-17 and now there’s another new addition: Tinashe. The pop star will cap off the Sunday night bill that also includes Big Freedia, Robert DeLong and Sean Leon.

The singer’s Joyride album was announced three years ago and finally came out in April, but she’s looking to regain her momentum, and headlining the outdoor festival village stage should help. Tinashe rounds out the top line of the poster, which is strong on hip-hop, R&B and pop.
