We’re just over a week away from CMJ 2015 as the Music Marathon returns to New York City October 13th through October 17th with it’s most innovative daytime programming schedule to date. During the four days of daytime programming, CMJ will host intimate discussions with the industry’s leading voices.

The conference kicks off Tuesday, October 13th, with the inaugural Technology Day. The day will feature a roster of known thought leaders and edgy upstarts alike, including IBM Watson, Nuntio Technologies, Concert Window, Brooklyn Research, Firstage, oiid, Mew365 and Microsoft programs including The Cube—an innovative three dimensional art installation that reacts to movements and gestures.

CMJ badge holders will also be able to participate in exclusive YouTube-lead workshops at the YouTube Space New York in Chelsea Market—only a two-minute walk from CMJ’s new headquarters at Dream Downtown.

Each day of the conference will see a different focus and format including the inaugural Technology Day, International, College Radio, CLE and Networking. A few of the highly regarded speakers include music supervisor Randall Poster (Vinyl, Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel), viral rapper Prince Harvey, Will Sheff (Okkervil River), Meredith Graves (Perfect Pussy), and Cornerstone Agency / The FADER’s Jon Cohen. All daytime conversations will take place at CMJ’s HQ, Dream Downtown.

CMJ Music Marathon Badges are available now and include access to the daytime programming and showcases. CMJ Show Passes are also on sale.
