Tonight is the second of two community meetings Sunset Strip Music Festival organizers are outreaching the immediate surrounding community about the first ever street closure of the Sunset Strip for a day long music festival. On Saturday, September 12 for 24 hours starting at 7 a.m., the famous drag will be shut down from Doheny to San Vicente.

The first meeting bought out less than a dozen people, who were "amazingly positive," according to Nic Adler, owner of The Roxy and one of the festival organizers. He said no access to homes will be completely cut off, but most questions were geared to those basic type of logistics. "We have a lot of support from the city council, neighbors and businesses," he explained.

The festival begins at 2 p.m. and includes 40 bands like KoЯn, Shiny Toy Guns and LMFAO playing on street stages with various acts inside clubs, some of them running shows until 2 a.m. Tonight's neighborhood outreach meeting is at 6 p.m. at The Roxy.
