Music fans have a lot to look forward to this year at the San Diego County Fair – the 2014 theme is a hint: Fab Fair, a nod to the British Invasion of the mid-‘60s.
 
On Tuesday, the fair announced a slate of 18 shows booked for the Grandstand stage, including the Fab Four, The Ultimate Tribute, plus a slew of onetime arena rockers like Huey Lewis & the News, America (on the 4th of July!) and REO Speedwagon, plus R&B superstar Smokey Robinson and, out on the reggae tip, Matisyahu.
 
Latin-music fans will be pleased by the booking of Voz Demando, who will kick off the season on June 8 (the fair officially begins the day before); as well as Texas’ Norteno act Grupo Intocable; Ezequiel Pena; and the King of the Accordion, Ramon Ayala.
 
All of the above shows are free with fair admission, but there are a couple ticketed shows as well, including country performers Hunter Hayes and Darius Rucker, a name some may recognized from his Hootie & the Blowfish days, as well as comedian Jeff Dunham on June 12.
 
If that's not enough music, there's a battle of the band's running for week! Tim Pyles of FM 94/9 has more details HERE.
