The Sunset Strip Music Festival kicked off its first street closure today, drawing big crowds early afternoon as The Donnas, Fishbone, Unwritten Law, among other bands, took to the one of the six stages. Over 50 bands are playing through 2 a.m. with Ozzy Osbourne headlining--his first time back playing the Strip in years.

Things are looking up for this burgeoning festival and if you're planning on heading over tonight, take a note of the schedule and the parking situation.
