The State Fair will wrap up 2012 with rap, and all the language that comes with the genre.
Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller will headline at the grandstand on Labor Day, the final day of the fair, officials announced Tuesday.
Lyrics sung by Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller are at times downright raunchy, but the fair does "allow artists a bit more leeway in the grandstand" than it does on free stages at the fair, "with it being a hard-ticket separate venue -- just like shows at the Target Center or the Xcel," said fair spokeswoman Brienna Schuette.
Other newly announced acts: bluesy songstress Anita Baker, Aug. 26; and 1980s rockers Journey, Pat Benatar and Loverboy on Sept. 1.
Tickets for each night go on sale May 19. For pricing and other details, visit mnstatefair.org or call 651-288-4427.
The fair opens Aug. 23.
