SSMF Doing Its Part To Help Local Heroes

Aside from bringing an amazing festival to the Sunset Strip, this festival is all about restoring the sense of community. On that note, the SSMF is welcoming all Los Angeles Firefighters free entry into the festival on Saturday September 12. We appreciate all they contribute year round, but in times like this it seems we are EXTRA appreciative. As a token of our gratitude, we welcome them to have a stress free day off and enjoy some tunes.

Thanks to the LAIST!

A lot of thank-yous, hugs and gratitude has been given to firefighters this past week in light of the recent wildfires, most notably the Station Fire. With that said, Sunset Strip Music Festival organizers today announced that they are allowing free admittance to Los Angeles City and Los Angeles County Firefighters with proper ID into the festival on Saturday when the street closes. Some 40 bands will take the outdoor and indoor-club stages from 2 p.m. to around 9 p.m. (with shows continuing indoors until around 2 a.m.). Headliners include Ozzy Osbourne, Korn, Pepper, The Donnas, Fishbone, Unwritten Law, Kottonmouth Kings, Shiny Toy Guns, Shwayze and LMFAO (see a full list here). Tickets are selling at $39.50 pre-sale, $50 at the door.
