They say that music festival season ends in the summer, but in New York City the best show is happening right now! At the CMJ Music Marathon you can see all of the up-and-coming musicians on various stages throughout the city. Do you love to find the best bands before they become “big”? Then the CMJ Music Marathon must be on your radar.
In 1981 the first CMJ was held with only two bands performing. Since then it has become one of the most important outlets for new music. With over 1,400 performers getting the chance to prove their talent in over 80 venues in the city, it is a crucial platform to stardom, and remains one of the most exciting events of October in New York City. This year marks the marathon’s 33rd year running, and throughout the years it has introduced us to some of our favorite musicians and bands.
But let’s set aside the actual music for just a moment. CMJ is also a great resource for people who want to get into the music industry. It offers informative panels and conference events with industry insiders. This is a perfect opportunity to get your foot in the door if you’re looking to build a career in entertainment.
CMJ is running from October 14th to the 19th this year. Wondering how you can see your favorite band live before they hit the big time? All shows are first come first serve, but if you have a badge you can get in before the crowd. Badges are $549, but discounts are available if you act now! For more information click here!
