Organizers for the fourth annual Sunset Strip Music Festival have announced that 2011 Elmer Valentine Award honorees Mötley Crüe will return to their roots and close the outdoor street festival on Saturday, August 20th.

As previously announced, Mötley Crüe will also launch the three-day fest at an Aug. 18th tribute event celebrating their 30-year career. The Aug. 20 street festival stages will also feature performances by a range of artists including Bush, Public Enemy, Escape the Fate, The Dirty Heads, and Black Veil Brides, as the Sunset Strip closes down to traffic to host a full day of music. Additionally, the all-day street festival will feature performances by Letlive., Deluka and 50 more bands.

Each year, West Hollywood's world-famous Sunset Strip celebrates its rich musical history and influence with the Sunset Strip Music Festival, 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 Thursday, Aug. 18, Friday, Aug. 19 and Saturday, Aug. 20.

On Saturday, Aug. 20, Sunset Boulevard will be closed to traffic between Doheny Drive and San Vicente Boulevard and will be transformed into a premier concert destination with outdoor stages, beer gardens, a VIP lounge, food trucks, interactive experiences and live performances inside the venues until 2 a.m.

A wide range of artists will perform in the Sunset Strip's legendary venues -- House of Blues Sunset Strip, Key Club, The Roxy Theatre, Viper Room and Whisky A Go-Go -- throughout all three days of the festival. Performers include iconic acts such as Ray Manzarek & Robby Krieger of The Doors with vocalist David Brock and Uriah Heep, as well as emerging talents including dredg.
