Sunset_strip_music_fest

And you thought weekend traffic on Sunset was bad – it’s about to get a lot worse…but, hey, fellow rockstars, it’ll be worth it.

The Sunset Strip Music Festival takes over West Hollywood this weekend, beginning Thursday, August 26, at venues Cat Club, House of Blues, Key Club, The Roxy Theatre, Viper Room and Whisky A Go-Go.

The street fest takes place Saturday, on Sunset between Doheny and San Vicente. Performances are set to take place on the outdoor stage and in the venues, plus, there will be beer gardens, food vendors and interactive experiences all day. (Does taking the bus up to the Strip count as an interactive experience? You bet. Cuz finding parking in the area? Good luck with that.)

Event headliners include the Smashing Pumpkins, Slash, Kid Cudi, Semi Precious Weapons, Common, Travie McCoy and many more. Oh! And, of course, special guest Fergie. (Click here for each day’s artists lineup.)

Gates open at 1 p.m. Tix start around $50 and are available at the SSMF official site.

Rock on!
