CMJ Music Marathon Ready to Run Through NYC

CMJMusicMarathonThe CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival 2009 takes over New York City this October 20-24.  Note the word “marathon” — there’s over 1,200 artists performing during the 5 day festival.Some of the artists that jumped out at us: Broadcast, School of Seven Bells, Zac Brown Band, Japandroids, Pitbull, The Very Best, Crystal Antlers, Portugal. The Man, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and Das Racist.

The main action will take place at New York Univerversity’s Greenwich Village campus with even more action taking place at 75+ nightclubs and theaters. A general admission badge costs a whopping $495 ($295 for students). That gets you into hundreds of live performances, dozens of panel discussions and film screenings, exclusive parties, exhibit area and a daytime lounge area.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the editor-in-chief's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
