A new PRINT music and culture magazine is about to be launched in Canada. Good!

After selling Toronto’s NOW Magazine a few years back, founder Michael Hollett has moved on to a new project: NEXT, a free colour magazine tackling music and culture in Canada. (What’s after “now?” “Next!” I see what you’ve done there.) And the publication won’t be confined to Toronto, either. The mag will be available in Vancouver and Calgary, too.

I quote:” Whether locked down or on the loose, NEXT offers irresistible insights into music, arts and fun as well as essential tips on how to get the most out of life in three of Canada’s most exciting cities. NEXT writers find the best in music and style, food, drink, gaming, cannabis, movies and TV as well as hyper-local insights on must-see events in Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary.”

Good. We need this kind of thing in this country. Read more at
