We are reporting on this here news that most of you probably already know about. It’s once again time for the Illinois State Fair, it’s just right around the corner and only a few weeks away (like 27 weeks in fact). The Illinois State Fair will be happening this year on August 13th through the 23rd. Last week the State Fair announced some of their headlining grandstand acts. The first up is the 26 year old singer songwriter, Kane Brown. Then big country legend Toby Keith. Something about a Neil Diamond cover band. Another country act, Chris Young. We have big time rapper LL Cool J performing… for the first time in Springfield(?) And then of course we have Puddle Of Mudd.

That’s what they have announced so far, folks! Tickets for some of those acts go on sale online on April 25th. Stay tuned for more State Fair announcements, you can pay attention to the Illinois State Fair website, or follow them on facebook. Will this year top Joan Jett and Snoop Dogg?

Snoop Dogg + More Announced For Illinois State Fair 2019 Grandstand Acts


It looks like most of the acts have been announced for the 2019 Illinois State Fair Grandstand lineup right here in Springfield in August (can you believe it’s almost August already)?? One big and notable act is popular rapper and actor Snoop Dogg (pictured above), performing in Springfield for the first time(?). That’s happening Friday, August 16th and tickets are going for as low as $25 for the back back row. Other acts include the country music duo “Dan + Shay”, and then also on the country end of the music spectrum is “Old Dominion“. Then you’ve got the return of vocal group Pentatonix, and also some sort of Neil Diamond cover group called “The Traveling Salvation Show” (why couldn’t we get the real Neil Diamond)? Then the one other one is some pop group of boys called “Why Don’t We“, very interesting.

The schedule and ticket pre-sales for all of those acts can be found on the State Fair grandstand website right here. Have a great summer!
