Here at CMJ, we’re all about bringing people together for learning/sharing ideas/strategic socializing, and that’s why we are psyched to announce the first round of panels for this year’s CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival.

From October 18 to 22, CMJ 2011 will bring together various industry folk and pool the knowledge of their collective mind tanks to present over 50 panels, taking place at the Kimmel Center at NYU’s Greenwich Village campus.

Also new to this year’s programming are specialized panel concentrations falling under the Social Media series and DIY series. More info to come.
