Local bands will compete to win the opening showcase slot for the 3rd Long Beach Funk Fest which takes place Aug 20th on the streets in downtown Long Beach.

There are still spots open for bands that would like to try out! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
West Hollywood: The Sunset Strip Music Festival
This year's honorees, Motley Crue, return to their old stomping grounds after a stop at the Bowl earlier this summer. But it's not all hair metal. On Saturday, the Crue takes the outdoor stage along with unlikely warmups from political power-fighters Public Enemy and hipster drum and keyboard duo Matt & Kim.
Thu-Sat Aug 18-20. Multiple West Hollywood locations. $55 and up
Downtown: Hard Summer Music Festival
The dance music tour is usually just DJ beats blending into a bleary-eyed, all-night rave. Two acts make the LA stop noteworthy: James Murphy and Pat Mahoney of the recently deceased LCD Soundsystem perform together, and bug-eating horror-hip-hop sensations Odd Future are also on the bill.
Sat Aug 6. 1245 N. Spring St., Downtown. $70 and up here.
Orange County: Pacific Festival
A true kitchen sink mix. You've got the breathy female vocals and floaty synths of Phantogram, the folk-punk of Black Lips, and the trippy rhythms of Aussie electronic wizards Cut Copy. And then there's the headliner — Snoop Dog. Pack a cooler of 40s.
Sat Aug 13. Oak Canyon Ranch, 5305 Santiago Canyon Rd., Silverado. $75 and up here.
