Organizers for the Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) have announced that the fourth annual event will take place Thursday, August 18th, Friday, August 19th and Saturday, August 20th on The Sunset Strip in West Hollywood.
The three-day SSMF 2011 kicks off August 18th with a tribute to a Sunset Strip icon. In 2010, SSMF honored legendary guitarist Slash for his contributions to The Sunset Strip. Other previous honorees have included rock icon Ozzy Osbourne (2009) and Lou Adler, Mario Maglieri and Elmer Valentine (2008) – all of whom helped create the vibrant music scene on The Sunset Strip. SSMF continues Friday and Saturday with dozens of musical artists of different genres performing at venues including The Roxy Theatre, Key Club, Viper Room, Whisky A Go-Go, Cat Club and House of Blues Sunset Strip. Who will be 2011's icon? It could be anyone. The Sunset Strip's history is so effing rich.
SSMF 2011 will include an all-day street festival on Saturday, August 20th between San Vicente Boulevard and Doheny Drive. The street festival includes outdoor stages, live music in the venues, a beer garden, a VIP rooftop lounge, vendors and interactive experiences throughout the day and into the night.
"We are thrilled that the Sunset Strip Music Festival continues to grow and attract new fans each year. The festival embodies the true spirit of The Sunset Strip, with individuals, venues and businesses working together to create a signature event that celebrates not only the boulevard's musical legacy but also its future," noted SSMF Executive Director Todd Steadman. "We're working to ensure that this year's event continues to exceed fans' expectations."
SSMF plans to announce additional details, including the 2011 honoree, ticket sale information and performing artists, in the coming weeks.
