Welcome to day two of Panel Beater, CMJ’s daily guide to the panels at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon. It’s only the second day of the festival so you’re probably still feeling fresh. Why not add a panel or two to your itinerary today? Up for discussion are topics including advice on becoming an artist, smart phone technology, how to break a band in the digital marketplace, recording and mastering tips and so much more.

Today CMJ also hosts a series we’ve named Fireside Chats. These intimate meetings offer badgeholders a chance to get an up-close and personal look at discussions between two leading industry figures.

Our selections below only scratch the surface of what’s on offer. Make sure you also check out our full panels page and add events to your schedule over here.
