Sunset Strip Music Festival

WHEN: August 16th-18th
WHERE: Los Angeles
TOP ACTS: Bad Religion, De La Soul, Far East Movement, Marilyn Manson, The Offspring, RZA

For the fifth year running, the Sunset Strip Music Festival is invading L.A. Acts like Hank III and RZA will hit the Strip's coolest clubs, while headliners including Marilyn Manson and Bad Religion will play on massive outdoor stages.

PRO TIP:  Expect plenty of tributes to the Doors, who played many early gigs at the Whiskey a Go-Go in 1966 and will be honored at the fest. "What a great time we're going to have," keyboardist Ray Manzarek recently said. "The Sunset Strip. Live bands, loud music, rock & roll. It's the Sixties all over again."
