After navigating the unbridled chaos of this year’s CMJ Music Marathon in New York, Andrew Flanagan has some tips on how to make the experience work in your favor. Via The Quietus:

CMJ, the annual five-day music and music business festival based in Manhattan and (mostly) west Brooklyn, is too stressful to be enjoyable, too attended and attentioned to be truly underground, too chaotic to be organized, and too spread out to be considered any sort of proper festival – especially considering that any given day in New York (or any other mega-major metropolis) offers about the same opportunity for musical discovery, and that every venue in New York, whether officially aligned with the originating institution or not, lists that week’s shows with the prefix ‘CMJ.’ It’s a fucking shitshow, and many are over it. (And I’m not the only one who recognizes it)
