Fairgoers have a new reason to celebrate Wednesday: The Minnesota State Fair has released its full 2021 Grandstand Concert Series.
The lineup release comes as anticipation for this year's fair grows.
"Booking has been a bit of a challenge because we had to put everything on pause for a whole year," Danielle Dullinger, spokesperson for the Minnesota State Fair, said previously, adding that the fair getting the green light later than normal meant organizers "are working on a pretty constrained timeline."
Normally, organizers start unveiling Grandstand acts about six to nine months before the fair.
Fair organizers said tickets will be made available through Etix online, by calling 800-514-3849, or by picking tickets up during a limited-time opening from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday, July 14 and from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, July 21 at the State Fairgrounds Ticket Office.
Here's a look at the complete concert list:
Miranda Lambert with special guest Lindsay Ell (special guest just announced)
Maren Morris with special guest to be announced
The Current’s Music On-A-Stick featuring Lake Street Dive with special guests Low Cut Connie and Kiss the Tiger
