The inaugural 2005 event marked the first time that a new CMJ Festival joined its New York City counterpart among the world’s great music events; Cleveland, with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, multiple club and concert venues and a rich musical culture, proved to be the perfect place to host such an event. Music Fest 2005 sold almost 18,000 admissions and included bands such as the Pixies, Spoon, the Futureheads, Digable Planets, Stephen Malkmus and a dozens of emerging artists.

CMJ Rock Hall Music Fest 2006 will kick off Wednesday, June 14 with an opening-night concert at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. From June 15-18, a full lineup of shows will be featured each evening at Cleveland’s hottest venues (scheduled to include the Agora, Beachland Ballroom, Grog Shop, House of Blues, Odeon, Peabody’s and, new to the Music Fest this year, Wilbert’s). Back-to-back daytime concerts will also be scheduled on two stages at the Festival Village outside the Rock Hall June 16-18. In addition, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will feature a series of educational programs, panel discussions and workshops throughout the weekend.

Submit today for the opportunity to perform at one of the year’s most important music events!
