The CMJ Marathon 2013 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 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. The CMJ Music Marathon 2013 lineup hasn't been announced yet.
The confirmed dates for CMJ Music 2013 are October 15 - 19. The submissions are open and they're taking them through Sonicbids. FIND OUT MORE
