Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2006
imeem, an online network for social media, announced today that it is teaming with CMJ, the industry authority on new music and music industry reports, to launch the official social media site for the CMJ Music Marathon – a week-long music fan and industry festival, featuring live music showcases with up and coming artists, being held at the Lincoln Center and other supporting venues in New York City from October 31 through November 4, 2006.
During and after 2006 CMJ Music Marathon, artists and music fans can take backstage and live show photos and videos and share them online with others at http://cmj.imeem.com . While some will be conducting interviews with artists and band members, fans, concert-goers and artists are all invited to share their own personal photos, videos, and blogs from the week-long music festival in the heart of New York City.
In addition, imeem and CMJ are bringing users the "on-the-go" mobile updates to fans and artists as they explore the many showcases, seminars, and parties during the 2006 CMJ Music Marathon. The mobile fan program, called ACCESS CMJ, will deliver real-time updates directly to the users' cell phones and give users exclusive access to CMJ news and information, band and venue schedules, backstage hangs, contests, and much more. Fans can join for alerts on their favorite CMJ bands and to get VIP access to CMJ showcases and events.
imeem's innovative social media network is devoted to connecting the online creative community, which includes bands, DJs, filmmakers, and photographers, with an ever-growing and active online viewing community. Some examples of artists on imeem include We Are Scientists, She Wants Revenge, Lady Sovereign, Pete Yorn, Marjorie Fair, Madlib and Kings of Leon.
