SUNSET STRIP MUSIC FESTIVAL
TO CELEBRATE THE DOORS AT 2012 FESTIVAL
Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) organizers today announced that the fifth annual three-day music festival--taking place on the Sunset Strip Thursday, August 16 through Saturday, August 18--will celebrate the music and legacy of The Doors.
The festival will kick off with an exclusive VIP event honoring the iconic Sunset Strip band on August 16, which will feature an all-star band celebrating The Doors, and will conclude with an all-day street fest on Saturday, August 18.
Marilyn Manson will headline the outdoor street fest, which will also feature performances by The Offspring, Steve Aoki, Bad Religion, very special guest Black Label Society and more listed below.
Many of the artists will celebrate The Doors by performing their take on some of The Doors' legendary songs. The venues within the street festival closure--The Roxy Theatre, Whisky A Go-Go and Key Club--will also host full lineups from more than 50 bands throughout the day.
Look for further lineup announcements to be revealed in the coming weeks. Tickets are on sale today (6/13) via TicketWeb.com/SSMF. A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit Impact Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center in Pasadena, CA., which has been treating individuals struggling with the powerful force of addiction since 1969.
