Southern California band, Linkin Park will headline the 2013 Sunset Strip Music FestivalÂ that will be held on August 1-3.
Mike Shinoda said about headlining this years festival, “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 couldnâ€™t say no. We are excited to announce that weâ€™ll be headlining the Sunset Strip Music Festival in West Hollywood, CA on August 3. This time we mean it â€¦ this will be the ONLY U.S. show for the rest of 2013.”
It will be the bands only appearance in North America in 2013. Even though they had mentioned in February that the Â Vegas show was going to be their last show in North America for 2013.
