Last week SSMF dropped the bomb on Los Angeles that is their annual initial line-up announcement. After teasing with a LINKIN’ PARK headliner, the creative minds behind the Strip celebration that closes down the esteemed Boulevard from Doheny to San Vicente have continued to pursue a hip-hop flavored line up that includes Wale, Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick, Logic, Asher Roth, Warren G and Bizarre Ride featuring Fatlip, amongst others. Rockers AWOLNATION and Black Rebel Motorycycle Club ensure that the event will have typical sunset strip rock and roll flavors and roots too. Emerging acts, especially local ones, were not spared either with The Diamond Light and Terraplane Sun being two notables – and with many more additions soon to come.
The big day is August 3rd, but announcements concerning pre-shows, artist additions, nighttime venue events and other SSMF festivities can be found at the official event website here.
