Celebrating the music and legacy of The Doors, the 5th Annual Sunset Strip Music Festival will allow attendees to rock out at five of the Sunset Strip’s most popular venues – the House of Blues Sunset Strip, The Roxy Theatre, Viper Room, Key Club & Whisky A Go-Go.  Starting on Thursday, August 16, culminating with an all-day street fest on Saturday, August 18, the Sunset Strip Music Festival will feature bands such as The Offspring, Bad Religion, Black Label Society, The Mowgli’s and headlining the outdoor street fest will be Marilyn Manson. 

5thAnnual Sunset Strip Music Festival
August 16-18, 2012
Sunset Boulevard
1:00 PM – 11:00 AM
Venues closing at 2:00 AM

As in years past, Sunset Boulevard will be closed to traffic between Doheny Drive and San Vicente Boulevard for SSMF and transformed into a premiere concert destination with two outdoor stages, beer gardens, an artist autograph tent, an outdoor VIP rooftop lounge, silent disco, VIP Lounge at On The Rox, food trucks and interactive experiences. 

The Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel is definitely not the closet hotel to the Festival, but as hotels fill up quickly for the event, finding a chic, modern place to stay can be difficult.  You can even continue your celebrity spotting right from the comfort of our open-air lobby.  Located near many outstanding attractions like Universal Studios Hollywood and directly across the street from the Burbank (Bob Hope) Airport, the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel can be your perfect music festival retreat.
