Nextfest 2021

Nextfest 2021

The Nextfest Arts Company returns to the virtual stage for 11 days of creative newness and experimentation online the 26th annual Nextfest.
Nextfest 2021

A celebration of the creative voice of the next generation, Nextfest is a multidisciplinary art festival that promotes the development of emerging artists. Stage, screen, page, and everywhere imaginable in between, converge as we gather to celebrate with over 600 of Alberta’s emerging artists.

Once again, The Nextfest Arts Co. will upload 400+ emerging artists to the cloud where they will sing, dance, act, write, paint, design, compose, edit, and choreograph their way into your living rooms! For more info, to stay up-to-date with the festival schedule, and to stream nightly June 3 – 13, 2021, visit
