Joan Jett Named 2013 Honoree for Sunset Strip Music Festival

Each year the Sunset Strip Music Festival (August 1-3, 2013) picks an honoree that has influenced the history of that fabled road. Past years have included Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue, Slash, and Public Enemy. The sixth year honoree will be Joan Jett, which makes her the first woman honored at the fest. She will perform a special show with The Blackhearts on August 1 along with an awards ceremony. Good luck getting tickets to that.

The only other artist confirmed so far is Linkin Park, but expect a bunch more announcements soon.
