NXNE Interactive, presented by Kobo, Toronto's own global leader in eReading, has confirmed that the Toronto Music City Initiative - initially announced last year at NXNE - is back with a panel on Thursday, June 13 to launch the "44/79" brand, designed to activate all artists, industry supporters, and fans of the Toronto music community. Using the Austin, Texas model, the campaign hopes to create more awareness about Toronto's music scene, more opportunities for live music in Toronto and a more music-friendly City Hall. Participating in the discussion will be Graham Henderson (Music Canada), Mike Tanner (NXNE), Jesse Kumagai (Massey Hall) and Andrew Weir (Tourism Toronto).

Canadian-owned music video network OnAir.FM and NXNE have partnered to provide worldwide exposure to the 1000 NXNE bands playing the festival. All 2013 NXNE Music artists have been asked to create an original creative video for distribution on the official NXNE YouTube channel. OnAir.FM will promote these videos to their 110 million monthly viewers around the world. This collaborative relationship will expand the global reach for NXNE artists through OnAir.FM through exposure to an international audience.

All NXNE passes, wristbands and tickets are now available online at www.nxne.com/tickets.
