Two of the music industry’s premier entertainers are headed to the Illinois State Fair this summer

Grammy award winning recording artist, songwriter, actor, and philanthropist Ludacris will perform on the Grandstand stage on Saturday, August 18.

Ludacris’ countless hits including “Stand Up,” “Get Back,” and “Money Maker,” have solidified him as one of music’s best entertainers with more than 20 million albums sold. In 2010, Ludacris was named one of the most effective influencers on American culture.

In addition to his dynamic stage performances, Ludacris has had a recurring role in ‘The Fast & The Furious’ film franchise, and has also appear in the movies ‘Crash,’ ‘Hustle & Flow,’ and ‘No Strings Attached.’  Ludacris has also appeared on television’s ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,’ hosting duties on the Billboard Music Awards, and former judge on the reality television show, Rising Star.

Joining Ludacris will be Flo Rida.  The Florida native rose to fame at the age of 18 as the hype man for Fresh Kid Ice from 2 Live Crew.  Flo Rida comes from a long line of family musicians, including his father and sisters, with a variety of gospel and R&B influences.  His 2008 breakout single, “Low,” was number one on the U.S. charts for ten weeks and broke digital download sales at the time of its release.  Other Flo Rida hits include, “Club Can’t Handle Me,” “Right Round,” and “Wild Ones.”
