Summer fairs and festivals are once again building their lineups in hopes that when the snow melts the shows can begin.  While this all depends on the COVID infection rate and the rate of which people can get vaccinated, event planners aren't waiting around to book their acts.

The latest to announce the final piece of their lineup would be the Iowa State Fair.  Five Finger Death Punch rounds out the mostly country, along with Styx and the Beach Boys, lineup.  FFDP will take the stage on Friday, August 20.  Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday January 29 at IowaStateFair.org.

If you are used to going to the Mississippi Valley Fair and not sure about the details of the State Fair in Des Moines the key is you only need to buy tickets for this one night.  In other words, skip the country.  You will still need to buy Iowa State Fair admission as that is not included in your purchase and must be purchased to attend the event.

The information from the fair on their COVID guidelines states:

The Iowa State Fair Grandstand is located outdoors, and at this time, all seats are on sale. All safety precautions will be followed per CDC guidelines in August 2021. Visit our website for more information.

So there you go.  Another summer show on the books to give us hope for a normal rock concert year.
