Wanna play NXNE? Here’s how…


This blog posting will tell you how to get your music-related film…or…your band into the festival.
I have a lot of incredible bands who are friends of Phog, so I thought I should pass this on.
Check it out. You should take heed of this early opportunity…Windsor bands in particular should get ahead of the game!

Feel it’s time to show the world what you’ve got? Or Canada at least?

The North By Northeast Music & Film Festival and Conference – affectionately known as NXNE – is now accepting submissions for next year’s festival. They’re looking for bands who want to play, and for filmmakers with who want to screen their music-themed flicks.

Every year, NXNE showcases more than 450 Canadian and international acts at 35 downtown Toronto venues. It’s also a great opportunity for musicians to catch up with old friends, rub elbows with musical legends, and show their stuff to label reps.

If you submit before December 31, the fee is $25; after that, it’s $35. The final deadline is January 12, 2007 – so better get cracking!

Or, feel more like a little sojourn by the sea? At the other end of the country, NewMusicWest 2007 – which is happening in Vancouver next May – is also looking for submissions. If you’ve you’ve got a demo to dish out, go here.”

It’s cheaper to submit the sooner you submit…so GET ON IT!!
