“Each year SSMF celebrates the Los Angeles music scene with one-of-a-kind performances on The Sunset Strip. From Fergie performing with Slash in 2010 to Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger taking the stage with Marilyn Manson in 2012, SSMF creates unique moments you won’t find anywhere else,” noted SSMF co-producer and Roxy owner Nic Adler. “This year’s street festival features bands Linkin Park, Awolnation, Asher Roth and Street Drum Corps, whose careers began performing in Sunset Strip venues. We look forward to welcoming these artists back as they perform in front of thousands of music fans on the music boulevard’s largest stage.”
In addition to the two outdoor stages on The Sunset Strip, venues inside the street festival closure – including The Roxy, Whisky A Go-Go and a special outdoor Viper Room stage -- will feature full lineups throughout the day and into the night, including performances by WARREN G and BIZARRE RIDE featuring FATLIP & SLIMKID3 at The Roxy and 7LIONS at the Whisky. Artists performing in the venues include:
Bizarre Ride featuring Fatlip & SlimKid3
Smile Empty Soul
The Active Set
The Last Internationale
The Diamond Light
(More to be announced.)
