Updated: State Fair Adds Kesha, Three Days Grace to Lineup

Updated 5/10/2016 with new lineup additions:

As the Great New York State Fair begins a new era with a new Chevy Court and the absence of the Grandstands, organizers come out to the plate and decidedly hit a home run as they announce 2016’s closing act.

At 6 p.m. Sept.  5, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Chicago will treat the crowd to a free concert.  Although it’s not the first appearance for the multiple-award-winning group, their absence has been notably missed and fans all over New York and beyond are cheering for their return.

Also announced as part of this year’s lineup are the following:

Just announced:

Kesha, Thursday, Aug. 25 at 8p.m.
Three Days Grace, Wednesday, Aug. 31 at 8 p.m.
