Linkin Park will be the headliner for this year’s Sunset Strip Music Festival, which takes place on August 3 on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, California.
"We started our career playing clubs on The Strip," said frontman Chester Bennington in a statement. "It’s a thrill to be back where it all began, headlining this festival in our hometown."
Tickets for the event start at $79 and are on sale now at SunsetStrip.EventBrite.com . In addition, a limited number of front-row tickets for the event are currently on sale to members of Linkin Park's official fan club, LP Underground . A percentage of the proceeds raised by the festival will benefit Music for Relief, LP’s non-profit organization that provides aid to those affected by natural disasters.
More acts for the festival will be announced in the coming weeks.
