Toronto’s ever-expanding and prolific take on a music festival is here in full force and just like Rob Ford on a football, North By Northeast is ready to do some damage. The fest turns 20 this year and it’s really not taking things lightly as this year’s programming spotlights everyone from St. Vincent to Juicy J to Spoon to bands such as Swans and METZ who generally aim to leave you passed out near a speaker. Yonge & Dundas Square and the Sennheiser House are the big highlights but you can’t forget about the other parties and showcases that assault the city without leaving a number. To help, we’ve compiled a visual guide so share it with your best pals, calendar up, and pray for your lungs.
