Another 40+ bands announced for NXNE 2015

Willow Smith, Darlene Shrugg, Raz Fresco, Lia Ices, Mission of Burma and more confirmed for this year's fest – plus, a strong dose of female talent to descend on the city this spring


NXNE announced another 40+ bands confirmed to play this year’s festival today, including some of Toronto’s best and brightest: Greys, Moon King, Darlene Shrugg (with separate shows by members Slim Twig and U.S. Girls) will play NXNE 2015. Former NOW cover subject Jennifer Castle, Sook Yin-Lee’s new band Jooj, Crosss and Soupcans are also confirmed for the fest, which runs June 17-21.

We’re excited to see a long list of women too, like L.A.’s Warpaint, Lia Ices, Chastity Belt, hair-whipper Willow Smith and Cassie Ramone (Vivian Girls, The Babies).

Indie rock lifers Craig Finn (The Hold Steady) and Mission of Burma are also coming to town.
