First Leg of the CMJ Music Marathon Announced

The CMJ Music & Film Marathon announced around a million new artists this week. Okay, it’s more like 195, but that’s still a grip of names. The full list is below, but the ones that will make indie fans all hot and bothered 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, and Twerps.

Keep in mind that this is only the first batch of artists so expect more massive lineup explosions from CMJ. The festival is scheduled at various spots around New York City from October 16-20, 2012.

Tickets: Pick up a full badge to all the panels, parties, and shows for $425 (students $315). Only interested in the music? Grab a ShowPass for $149.
