Florida Georgia Line will be one of the headlining acts at the Illinois State Fair in 2014. On February 25, The State Journal-Register announced that the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley will play the grandstand on August 10.

The Illinois State Fair features several music stages, but Florida Georgia Line is the first confirmed grandstand performer. St. Louis fans who didn’t get to see Florida Georgia Line at the Chaifetz Arena in November might want to consider a road trip to the Illinois State Fair this summer. The fair will be held August 7 through 17 in Springfield, Illinois, which is just an hour and a half drive from St. Louis.

In addition to more musicians announced in coming weeks, the Illinois State Fair will feature attractions for the whole family. Fairgoers will enjoy the carnival midway, wine tasting, a Conservation Village and an Ethnic Village, a kids area, high dive show, an arts and crafts area, ballroom dancing, horse racing, tractor pulls, auto racing, exotic animal shows, livestock shows and much, much more.

Florida Georgia Line will also be part of the St. Louis Country Megaticket, but will be featured as a secondary act to Jason Aldean’s headlining shows on August 22 and 23. Fans who want to see Florida Georgia Line as a headliner can do so at the Illinois State Fair.
