Music, film and culture from the GTA’s northwest converge at NXNE

BRAMPTON, ON – On June 15, Brampton will take over iconic live music venue the Rivoli in Toronto with a showcase of some of the most exciting, budding artists who call Brampton home.

This is an exciting testament to the thriving music scene in the city.
