Wisconsin State Fair officials have mixed hip-hop with classic rock, comedy and old-school country for their first announcement of 2011 acts that will appear on the fair’s Potawatomi Bingo Casino Main Stage.
This year, for the first time, all Main Stage show ticket prices will include fair admission. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday online only at www.wistatefair.com.
For teens, the fair has landed a big-time crush: the hockey players turned Nickelodeon pop stars of Big Time Rush, featuring Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan, on Aug. 6. The show begins at 7 p.m. with an opening act to be announced. Tickets are $40, $30 and $20.
The 160th edition of the Wisconsin State Fair will run Aug. 4 through Aug. 14 at Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis. Prices do not include service charges.
