CMJ 2012
Starts: October 12
Ends: October 20
New York, New York
USA
 
 

The CMJ Marathon 2012 is set to go down in New York. It's put on by the College Music Journal, a long-standing publication of alternative music, and CMJ has been publishing long enough to have written about alternative music when it was still an alternative to the mainstream. They claim over 90,000 people attend the CMJ Marathon -- it has all of the requisite stuff like panels, guest speakers, film festival, and lots of music. So they'll descend on NYC in the Fall to give us one of the founding festivals of modern-day music festivals. CMJ was one of the first to champion the multi-club, urban setting music festival that we see today in SXSW.

 

 

CMJ 2012 Panels

The who's who of indie music topics and memes in an explosion of TED-style panels and discussions. Always interesting names and topics, this year's initial list does not disappoint. A second round of panels were announced on August 16th, including names like "A New Wave of Electronic Phonic," "Advanced PR Techniques for the Digital World" and "I Stream, You Stream, We All Stream…For What!?" VIEW CMJ PANELS

 

The first round of panelist speakers are in! So far the list includes Tim Westergren, Founder of Pandora Radio; David Adams, Music Content Manager at SoundCloud and Dave Cool, Director of Artist Relations at Bandzoogle; among others.
