The Sunset Strip Music Festival began Thursday and continues tonight with a series of concerts at venues in West Hollywood. But Saturday is the big day. Over 60 bands will play on a handful of outdoor and indoor stages when organizers shut down Sunset Boulevard for the day long street festival.

And a variety of names are included. From headliners the Smashing Pumpkins, Common and Kid Cudi to local favorites such as Saint Motel and White Rainbow to classics like Steel Panther and Slash, who will have Fergie as a special guest.
