Yes, we said “360 Drum Roller Coaster”

Tonight marks the first official day of The Sunset Strip Music Festival! There will be awesome concerts happening tonight and tomorrow at all the music venues located along the strip with the main festival and street closure (featuring headliners Mötley Crüe, Bush, and Public Enemy) happening on Saturday.   And…. if that wasn’t exciting enough, it’s just been announced that Mötley Crüe will be bringing the “360 Vertical Drum Roller Coaster” to the party!  Sounds crazy, right? Seriously, you have to watch the video to understand just how crazy this thing really is: 

There are still a few tickets left for Saturday’s festival so it’s not too late to see the drum roller coaster in action. Click here for tickets, line-ups, and info.

SSMF Kick-Off Party

The Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) is a little over a week away but The Standard, Hollywood just couldn’t wait that long.  The Standard, Hollywood has partnered up with other Sunset Strip businesses to bring you The SSMF Kick-Off Pool Party. The Roxy, The Comedy Store, Rudy’s Barbershop, The House of Blues Sunset, The Key Club, Soundcheck Hollywood, and more will be parking it at the pool this Saturday, August 13th, and will be giving away concert tickets, merch, passes to the SSMF, room nights, and all kinds of other goodies to keep you rockin’. There will be plenty of drink specials to keep you “hydrated” and we’ve arranged for some live acoustic sets from Cowboy & Indian, Rusty Maples and special guest John Bennett doing a set of acoustic covers by your favorite bands playing this year’s SSMF! Because, who doesn’t love a good acoustic version of a Public Enemy song?

This event is guest list only & space is limited, so RSVP ASAP to hollywoodrsvp@standardhotel.com

The SSMF Lineup has Just Been Announced!

Hot off the presses!  The Sunset Strip Music Festival lineup has just been announced.   Headliners are (drum roll, please) …  Motley Crüe, Public Enemy, Bush, Matt & Kim, Escape The Fate, The Dirty Heads, Cobra Starship, She Wants Revenge, Black Veil Brides and Tribal Seeds.  And that’s just the main stage!

Each year, West Hollywood’s world-famous Sunset Strip celebrates its rich musical history with SSMF, a three-day event that features a variety of artists throughout its venues culminating with an open air street festival on its last day. This year’s event takes place August 18 - August 20 and the best part is that the entire festival is walking distance from The Standard, Hollywood.
