Smashing Pumpkins to Headline Sunset Strip Music Festival

On Saturday, August 28, The Smashing Pumpkins will take the stage and close the third annual Sunset Strip Music Festival. “We are ecstatic to be able to bring this caliber of talent to the street and create what will undoubtedly become the ultimate end-of-summer music festival experience for our attendees,” says SSMF Festival Managing Director Karmen Beck.

“Following the Smashing Pumpkins’ show, bands will continue to play into the night in venues within the street closure, all of which will be free of charge to SSMF attendees.”

General admission, VIP and 3-Day VIP tickets for the event will go on sale tomorrow (Thursday, June 17) through Ticketmaster at 10 AM PST.

“The SSMF is donating a portion of all tickets sold to the Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN), a charity personally selected by honoree Slash. LAYN’s mission is to end homelessness, one kid at a time, by providing shelter, food and counseling for the abused, neglected and abandoned.”

But don’t worry If you can’t make it to the festival, you can always catch an intimate show this summer.
