The CMJ Music Marathon, New York’s annual new music festival, takes place October 16 to 20 at multiple venues in the city. The Music Marathon is put on by College Music Journal and is largely considered to be the place to discover new artists. In the past, the festival showcased artists like TV on the Radio, MIA, MGMT, Mumford & Sons, EMA, and Zola Jesus, assisting the launch of their careers into the megamusicsphere. The Marathon features over 1,300 artists, loads of panels (similar to TED talks), day parties, and concerts at more than 80 venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn. CMJ 2012 is headquartered at NYU’s Greenwich Village campus.
