Rocker Scott Weiland and his Stone Temple Pilots replacement Chester Bennington are set to headline the same festival with their other bands next month.
Weiland and his new act The Wildabouts will close out the Viper Room festivities on the Friday night of the sixth annual Sunset Strip Music Festival on 2 August, while Bennington’s Linkin Park will headline the main outdoor stage 24 hours later.
Bennington became the surprise frontman for STP earlier this year, following Weiland’s departure from the band, and they have just made the What I’ve Done singer a semi-permanent member for an upcoming tour.
This year’s Sunset Strip Music Festival will honor Joan Jett and also feature performances from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Wale, Awolnation, Semi Precious Weapons and Hoobastank.
The three-day festival, which begins on 1 August, will include sets at iconic Hollywood venues The Roxy, Viper Room and Whisky A Go-Go.
