SPRINGFIELD -- The State Fair is about three months away, but plans are already being unveiled for the big event. One of music's most popular rappers is coming to town. Pitbull will perform at the State Fair for the first time.

This year's fair is all about "Making Memories." That's the theme. Fair manager Amy Bliefnick says it will truly be memorable, even in its 165th year. Plus, she says, just like previous years, it will be affordable for families. The cost to get in will be the same as 2013.

Other musical acts lined up include Steely Dan, Boston and Jake Owen, plus last year's favorite Florida Georgia Line. Tickets to see Pitbull go on sale May 3. This year's State Fair runs August 7 - 17.
