This year, several bands of various genres will be taking the stage in Toronto. Included in the lineup are Wu-Tang legend Ghostface Killah, brooding indie rock favorite Father John Misty, and Las Vegas native Shamir, among several others.

North by Northeast was founded in 1995 and held annually in June in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Originally, the music festival featured small, independent acts, but since then the festival has expanded to cover a wider range of performers.

The festival is divided up into several different parts. This lineup announcement is for their Port Lands division, which aims to feature the best in soul and hip hop, and the best in indie rock.
