North By Northeast (NXNE) is pleased to announce provocative, politically charged electro-pop sensation Peaches as part of this year’s festival. From acclaimed theatre productions to her cinematic debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, her triumphant ‘Live at Massey Hall’ show to the release of her first book, Polaris Prize Winner Peaches, has pushed herself further and with more artistic rewards than ever before during her time away from the studio. Peaches has managed to wield immeasurable influence over mainstream pop culture while still operating from outside of its confines, carving a bold, sexually progressive path in her own image that's opened the door for countless others to follow.
Peaches will be joined by a special set from producer, promoter DJ Betti Forde. Stay tuned for support acts to be announced.
“We’ve followed Peaches’ amazing career since her earliest days in Toronto and we’ve been proud to have her perform and speak at NXNE over the years, “ says NXNE president/managing director, Michael Hollett. “NXNE is thrilled to have such an important and dynamic artist as Peaches launch the packed music programming at the festival.”
