The Sunset Strip Music Festival is back.
The event, which celebrates the Rock n Roll and icons that have made an impact on the legacy of The Strip, debuted in 2008 with the recognition of club owners and music moguls, Lou Adler, Mario Maglieri and Elmer Valentine, founders of Sunset Strip venues The Roxy Theatre, Rainbow Bar & Grill and Whisky A Go-Go.
The three day music festival officially gets underway with the 2013 honoree award presentation and tribute event on Thursday at the House of Blues Sunset Strip, followed up with special shows in those clubs on The Strip Thursday and Friday nights, and ends on Saturday, August 3.
The Strip will be transformed into a premier concert destination with two outdoor stages, beer gardens, an artist autograph tent, an outdoor VIP rooftop lounge, VIP Lounge at On The Rox, food trucks and interactive experiences.
Joan Jett will be the honoree at this year’s SSMF August 1-3 and will be celebrated at an exclusive VIP event Thursday, August 1 at the House of Blues to kick off the festival.
The City of West Hollywood will also honor Joan by officially proclaiming Thursday, August 1 Joan Jett Day.
