Sunset Strip Music Festival Unveils Lineup

12:01 PM Wednesday 6/15/11 | |

If there’s one thing that’s certain about this year’s festival celebrating West Hollywood’s music heritage, it’s that the annual event is going to get loud. Mötley Crüe loud.

Scheduled for Aug. 18-20, the fourth annual Sunset Strip Music Festival will honor Mötley Crüe with the Elmer Valentine Award. Valentine, along with Lou Adler and Mario Maglieri, founded the Rainbow Bar & Grill in 1972. As the club quickly became a watering hole for the musical rich and famous, including John Lennon, members of Led Zeppelin and Keith Moon. Even Elvis Presley was known to drop in from time-to-time.

The Crüe will also rock the Aug. 20 street festival. Other acts booked for the all-day party on a blocked-off stretch of Sunset between Doheny Drive and San Vicente Boulevard include Bush, Public Enemy, Matt And Kim, Escape The Fate, The Dirty Heads, Cobra Starship, She Wants Revenge, Black Veil Brides and Tribal Seeds.

But you can’t honor the boulevard’s music legacy without going to the clubs. Be sure to check out the festival’s “after parties,” like DJs Felix Cartal, Harvard Bass, Deathface and Bones performing at the Key Club and Semi Precious Weapons at the Roxy Theatre.

As in past years, there will be plenty music at the aforementioned nightspots as well as House Of Blues, Viper Room and Whisky A Go-Go. Names worth dropping include The Veronicas, Buckcherry and Dredg. Also be sure to check out the Whiskey A-Go-Go for The Doors’ Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger performing with vocalist David Brock.
