College Music Journal’s annual “CMJ Music Marathon” festival kicks off today in New York City on and around the campus of NYU. This festival will offer attendees an effective double-whammy with performances by independent artists from across the country, and an accompanying film competition for directors to showcase their music-related features.

The College Music Journal is a respected independent music entity who performs a number of services for independent musicians. These services include, but are not limited to: submission of songs to college and independent radio stations across the country, publishing of CMJ New Music Monthly (a print recap of new, promising independent musicians and their work which includes a compilation CD), and the hosting of the renowned CMJ Music Marathon.
The CMJ Music Marathon began in 1980 as a smaller set of concerts geared towards introducing good, indie artists to industry professionals, but has since grown in recognition and size. Notable past performers at the Music Marathon include such acts as U2, Nirvana, Modest Mouse, Clap Your Hand Say Yeah, the Counting Crows and others.

The festival will run through October 24, 2009 and will feature many concerts, film viewings, parties and panels for participants to take part in. More information on the acts and events at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon can be found here .
