The conference portion of CMJ Music Marathon will be headquartered at NYU's Kimmel Center for University Life from October 15-19 and has become a must-attend for industry professionals, press, artists, and those aspiring to all three.
Badges for the conference are on sale for $495 or for $275 if you are a student. Both of these badge prices will continue to rise in price as the festival approaches. In addition to entrance into the conference, a badge will also help you gain access into the Music Marathon's showcases taking place day and night across Manhattan.
