Sunset Strip Music Festival Adds Hip-Hop Stage And More Metal Bands
The Sunset Strip Music Festival—which for the first time is two days, not just one—made the announcement in June that Jane's Addiction would headline, playing their album "Nothing Shocking" in its entirety. Since then, however, they've added more acts to the roster, and have shared the lineups on the indoor stages. The festival takes place September 20 and 21 with other headlining acts including Empire of the Sun, The Cold War Kids, Destructo and Mayor Hawthorne. This is also the first year the festival has had a stage devoted entirely to hip-hop. The MURS 316 stage, which will be hosted by L.A. rapper Murs, will host acts like Riff Raff, Bun B, DJ Quik and Killer Mike (who we just saw with Run the Jewels at FYF Fest).
Stages in Whisky A Go Go and The Roxy offer music from several different directions. For instance, analog synth band Fartbarf (hey, we don't make the names) will play on the same stage as melodic death metal act Nekrogoblikon. Indie rock act The Narwhals will eventually be followed by mariachi-style metal cover act Metalachi and deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation. You could call a festival with a lineup like this "well-rounded."
We've put the lineup for each stage below. Tickets for the event start at $49.50 and can be purchased here.
