CMJ Music Marathon Announces 2012 Lineup, Oct 16-20 In NYC

Most music festivals are fun; I would argue that only a handful are important. CMJ Music Marathon is both. More of an experience than anything, CMJ spreads 1,300 performances across 5 days at more than 80 different New York City clubs and venues. Instead of highlighting big acts with established fan bases, CMJ is consistently dedicated to the discovery of new music, showcasing undiscovered and up-and-coming bands who often go on to become the big “buzz bands” of the following year.  Check out the lineup below!

Highlights include:

The Presets, The Walkmen, The Mountain Goats, Kimbra, GZA, OFF!, King Tuff, Killer Mike, Com Truise, DIIV, Pig Destroyer, The Jezabels, Electric Guest, Poolside, Daughn Gibson, Robert DeLong, Icona Pop, Emma Louise, Mac DeMarco, Prince Rama, Young Magic, MS MR, Sundress, The Soul Rebels, Twerps
