More musical acts are being announced as headliners at this summer's Illinois State Fair.  Just added to the star-studded lineup is an August 17th performance by pop star "Ke$ha." The fair runs August 8th to the 18th.

"This is an exceptional line-up," State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick said. "Whether classic rock, blues, country or, now, pop, the Illinois State Fair has a show to satisfy your musical taste."

Ke$ha joins performers that include country mega-stars Billy Currington (Aug. 9), The Band Perry (Aug. 13), Toby Keith (Aug. 14), Gary Allan (Aug. 16) and Thompson Square (Aug. 16), rock legends Styx (Aug. 10), REO Speedwagon (Aug. 10) and Journey (Aug. 18) and Grammy-winning blues guitarist John Mayer (Aug. 11). Her sophomore album, "Warrior," was released last November and already has produced a hit single in "Die Young."

Tickets for the Keith and Mayer concerts currently are on sale at Ticketmaster outlets. Tickets for all other shows will go on sale through Ticketmaster Saturday, April 27, beginning at 10 a.m.
