Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Excited for this year's Sunset Strip Music Festival? Get out your schedule and start planning, because the set times and venues for the August 18 street festival have been released.

For the fifth year, SSMF will close down Sunset Boulevard between Doheny Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard for one Saturday, filling the Sunset Strip with live music, food, drink and other activities (street hockey, anyone?). This year, the lineup includes eccentric metal star Marilyn Manson, 90s rock stalwarts The Offspring, famed club DJ Steve Aoki and legendary LA punk rockers Bad Religion.

The headliners will play on the two outdoor stages, but there's plenty of festival action indoors. Three hallowed Sunset Strip venues -- the Roxy, the Key Club and the Whisky A Go Go -- will play host to an eclectic lineup of artists (including acclaimed rap duo Das Racist) for nearly 12 hours.

A general admission ticket will set you back $75. VIP tickets will get you into a rooftop lounge, indoor lounges and special viewing areas, and cost $135. Tickets are on sale now.
