In latter years, the State Fair lineup announcement has become an anticipated event for the unprincipled, generation-spanning mishmash of genres it presents, but some institutional knowledge proves the grandstand bill has always been a spectacle. Highlights: Hank Williams Jr., Frank Sinatra Jr., the Fifth Dimension, Marty Robbins, Sonny James, Connie Smith Rationale: Bocephus’ first stint at the grandstand came in his prime, and it was one of the first grandstand sets to be anchored by a generational icon. Highlights: The Beach Boys, REO Speedwagon, Peter, Paul and Mary, the Everly Brothers, Chuck Berry, Belinda Carlisle, Willie Nelson and Family, Jay Leno Rationale: Willie Nelson played the state fair nine times in a decade. Come to think of it, you can see them this year, too. The contemporary fair can also use more “Feliz Navidad.” 37.

Geils Rationale: 1995 was a great year for people who like elevator music. Highlights: The Doobie Brothers, Don Williams, Ricky Skaggs, Chuck Mangione, Rodney Dangerfield, Air Supply Rationale: Other than the Doobies and Dangerfield, it looks like they just plucked the lineup at random from the Big Book of Banal White Dude Names. Highlights: Journey, Reba Mc Entire, Alabama Rationale: When perennial afterthought Alabama (who played the State Fair an attritioning 13 times) make your top three, you know it’s a toilet of a year.
Going off the Minnesota State Fair’s comprehensive database, we probed the list of entertainers dating back to 1962 in order to understand the breadth of talent that’s graced the grandstand stage. Highlights: Kid Rock, Jason Aldean, Lynyrd Skynyrd, OAR, Slightly Stoopid, 38 Special, Jackson Browne Rationale: There are no emojis to correctly articulate how sad Kid Rock headlining the Fair in 2009 is.
Highlights: Johnny Cash, the Beach Boys, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Chicago, Don Henley, Vanilla Ice Rationale: Though Vanilla Ice was the Fair’s first experiment with hip-hop* -- a failure that the grandstand is still recovering from -- the rest of the lineup does a good job bridging the gap from the lackluster ‘80s into the ‘90s boom. Highlights: Taylor Swift, Fergie, Brad Paisley, Goo Goo Dolls, Fountains of Wayne, the Allman Brothers Band, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Def Leppard, Styx, Foreigner Rationale: The grandstand goes pop in a big way, but not without letting old-hat ‘80s rock share the spotlight.

Highlights: Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash Show, Buck Owens, Susan Rye, George Kirby, Lynn Anderson Rationale: The first large-scale lineup leads with some heavy-hitters, but it’s also cluttered with nobodies (Don Rice III?

The Beach Boys and the best comic in fair history are subverted by the hackiness of Air Supply and Sha Na Na. Highlights: The Flaming Lips, Sonic Youth, Rascal Flatts, Eric Church, Kenny Rogers, Steve Miller Band, Poison Rationale: The fair’s most relevant year of the 2000s by a long stretch, especially considering Bret Michaels’ VH1-boosted comeback was going on at the time.
