For almost 30 years CMJ Music Marathon has played host to a countless number of indie bands (often catapulting them to major label status) and music industry panelists from around the globe. The 4 day conference + live performance festival is always held during the month of October in NYC, and promises to be a hot bed of progressive ideas and music discovery.
This year I will be covering the event for Music Think Tank and would like to give you a chance to attend from your laptop. I’ve posted my tentative conference schedule below. Take some time over the next few days to review the available panels and live performance happening on Thursday, October 23rd and Friday October 24th. Let me know which ones you would like me to attend and write about here in the comment section.
If you will also be in attendance, drop me a line so that we can possibly meet in person. I look forward to all of your questions, suggestions and comments regarding this years festivities.
