At this year’s CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival, we laughed, we learned, we got kicked in the chest—and we’re already gearing up to do it all over again in 2012.
 
CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival has officially opened registration and artist submissions for next year’s event, held October 16–20, 2012. Register now through December 31, 2011, to purchase a general registration badge for 45 percent off of the full walk-up price. Student registrants with a valid student ID may purchase a $95 badge, a discount of more than 70 percent off of the full walk-up price.
