Skaters at Riot Fest Chicago by Laura Baker-Finch

New York City -- If you thought CMJ's first artist announcement was overwhelming, you haven't seen anything yet. 

CMJ Music Marathon has just added 700 (!!) artists to its 2014 lineup that already included big names like The Kills, Cold War Kids, Bombay Bicycle Club, Slowdive, and The Horrors as well as the expected never-heard-of up-and-comers. 

Round 2 sees the return of Brooklyn's DIIV and A Place to Bury Strangers, who last played the festival in 2012 and 2008, respectively. New Zealand's Popstrangers, The Crookes from the UK, and Portland's Hockey are also now on the lineup along with James, Circa Wave, Little May, Oh Land, Bishop Nehru, Ratking, Spookyland Yellerkin, Splashh, Fort Lean, and Moses Sumney.

A few added artists have been featured recently on Cultivora, including Skaters who we caught onstage and backstage at Riot Fest and the recently-interviewed and -reviewed Vinyl Thief. Scroll down to see the full lineup as it stands. 

CMJ's showcases will take place across various NYC venues October 21-25 and its daytime conference component will find home in NYU's Greenwich Village campus. Badges are still available and are cheaper if purchased before the week of the event.
