Music

The 21st annual NXNE runs June 17-21, 2015. Tickets, passes, and wristbands are available here.

This year, you’ll find the best in music & culture at NXNE. It’s admittedly running a little different from what you’re used to – but we’re hoping it’ll make it easier for you to have a great time.


We like our music. That’s hopefully obvious by now, especially given the fact we’re celebrating 21 years in 2015. Find out about:

Stay tuned – we’ve got more artists & events to announce.
