One of the founding festivals of modern music festivals,
the CMJ Music Marathon, is slated for early
June in its 2005 incarnation. It is put on by the
College Music Journal, a long-standing publication
of alternative music. CMJ has been publishing
long enough to have written about Alternative
music when it was still an alternative to the mainstream.
So they will descend on NYC in September 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 and Lollapalooza.
It's also where you will see Coachella booking
agents browsing to see who will play Coachella
the following year.
There have been no announcements to date on who is
playing. As a matter of fact, they are still taking
band submissions, so we will probably be waiting until
July to find out what the 2005 lineup will be.
