CMJ Music Marathon Line-Up Announced

Published: 2005-07-05
Every year New York City plays host to the CMJ Music Marathon, bringing some of the world's best talent together for the four day festival. This year is no exception, with Canada's own Arcade Fire headlining the 25th Anniversary edition of CMJ, running from September 14th - 17th.

Some of the other performers that will be taking over NYC this fall include the likes of veteran indie band Brian Jonestown Massacre, oddly named rockers !!!, Norwegian popstar Annie, and Denmark blues-rockers the Blue Van. The Arcade Fire aren't the only Canadians making their mark, with Wolf Parade and Chad VanGaalen performing as well.

Not merely a music marathon, CMJ also includes a FilmFest where tons of huge cult films like Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, and Hedwig & the Angry Inch have made their debuts. Add on the keynote speakers and panels, and over 90,000 people will be hitting CMJ this year.
