Music Marathon & Film Festival is proud to announce that its latest slate of performing acts and artists is its boldest, most exhaustive yet. Coming in at just under 900 bands, this third round maintains the same adventurous programming CMJ has offered for the last three decades.

araabMUZIK, Braids, Cerebral Ballzy, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Exitmusic, French Montana, Gauntlet Hair, Hindi Zahra, Islands, Jacuzzi Boys, Kate Miller-Heidke, Lord Huron, Main Attrakionz, Nina Nastasia, Outernational, Parts & Labor, Quilt, Rusted Root, Seekae, Twin Shadow, Unstoppable Death Machines, Vockah Redu, Weekend, Xylos, Young Prisms, and Zambri. [Bands of interest are bolded for your viewing simplicity : ) ]

Of course, we’re not even close to being done. Hundreds more acts, still, will be announced in the coming weeks.
