By: Spacelab Research Staff
The CMJ Marathon has announced a preliminary set of acts for the 2008 CMJ Music Marathon in New York. It's a short list so far, including Octopus Project, Fujiya & Miyagi, Cotton Jones, Broken Social Scene, Deerhoof, Sian Alice Group, Jay Reatard and more. Check out the festival overview for a complete line up.
They claim over 90,000 people attend the Marathon. It's got all of the requisite stuff like panels, guest speakers, a film festival, and lots of music.
As always, they host some of the most insightful industry panels, often times with witty titles that only suggest at the cool content that lurks within: If I Only Had Some Funding, Thank God We Got Dropped, and Bands as Brands, because your band is a Coca-Cola and Starbucks onto the world, and you need to know how to market that.
