The first day of the festival includes music from Peter Murphy playing at the Roxy Theatre, Quiet Riot, and Jack Russell’s Great White featuring Faster Pussycat, also performing Bullet Boys, Future Villains, Lady Sinatra, and The Black Marquee.

On Friday, August 17, singers Robby Krieger and Rich Robinson will perform the album “Los Angeles” with special guest Ray Manzarek, R2A, Hank III, Mickey Avalon, James Ingram, and Teddy Campbell Band.

Saturday is the highlight of the festival as the city closes off the 9000-8900 blocks of Sunset Boulevard between Doheny Drive and San Vicente Boulevard making room for all the rock fans of Southern California. Performing on stage will be Marilyn Manson, The Offspring, Steve Aoki, Bad Religion, Black Label Society, Far East Movement, De La Soul, T. Mills, and The Mowgli’s. Dead Sara, a band originating from Los Angeles, will also be performing on August 18th on the main stage.

The festival will be rocking all weekend with nearby restaurants and stores having specials and promotions for the event. Isla Cantina will have discounted drinks and foods the entirety of the three day event, and Tattoo Mania will offer specials on piercings and tattoos.
