Linkin Park Confirmed for This Year's 'Sunset Strip'
Linkin Park are set to headline 2013 "Sunset Strip" music Festival, following in the footsteps of the Doors, Motley Crue, Slash and Ozzy Osbourne.

As Loudwire reports, this year's event rolls out from Aug. 1-3, with the final day becoming a street fair featuring the festival's biggest acts. As usual, Sunset Strip clubs the Roxy, Whisky A Go-Go, Viper Room and House of Blues are all filling their stages with a variety of performers throughout the music weekend.

In the band's posting about headlining this year's event, Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda stated: "We played our first shows as a band in 1998, on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. When we were approached about an opportunity to play a special show on the strip, we couldnt say no. We are excited to announce that well be headlining the Sunset Strip Music Festival in West Hollywood, CA on August 3. This time we mean it ... this will be the ONLY US show for the rest of 2013."

By "this time we mean it," Linkin Park is referring to the declaration that their Las Vegas show back in February would be their only North American performance of 2013.

Additional acts for the 2013 Sunset Strip Music Festival will be announced in the coming weeks.
