NXNE 2013 Bands Indie Underground Aaron McMillan Call The OfficeIf you like the music taste of Indie Underground then you should appreciate this list of bands that I have narrowed down from the 1000+ that are playing on 50+ stages at The 19th annual NXNE Festival (June 10 to 16) in Toronto.

Most bands listed are of the Pop Rock, Alternative, DJ / Electronic with a hit of Folk & Hip Hop. Bands are listed alphabetically and given no indication of importance. Inclusion into the list is based off Aaron from Indie Underground’s own taste.

Note: This list may change in the next few days from continuous refinement from NXNE and Indie Underground.
