The CMJ Festival is two weeks away and it’s already promising to be a great event! The CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival is an annual event put together by the CMJ Network. It is comprised of 4 main events.

  • CMJ Music Marathon – Artists and Bands selected by CMJ perform at various locales across New York City.
