CMJ announced the skinny on the 2009 CMJ Marathon, set to happen on October 20-24. The 2009 edition will include all of the usual live shows, speaker panels, and events, alongside a technology fair, film festival, and press lounge. Just think of all of the hot action that awaits YOU in the press lounge.
It will be spread across more than 75 locations in New York. Early bird registrants get in for $275 and students for $85 ... better get in on that before Alan Greenspan speaks and 'lets the market decide' to charge you more. Deadline is December 19th.
Artist can submit through Sonicbids. CMJ will announce a first 20 acts on March 11th (submission deadline of Dec 31) and another 50 artists on June 15th (submission deadline of March 31st). Learn more in the festival overview.
