Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The South Carolina State Fair announced Aloe Blacc's opening day concert is now free of charge.
“While finalizing entertainment for the fair, we decided to really go big on opening day by adding another free concert,” said South Carolina State Fair General Manager, Gary Goodman. “October was a tough month for our state last year and we know there’s still so much work to be done to continue the recovery process after the floods. We want to do our part by providing accessible, family-friendly entertainment for all.”
The concert is Wednesday, October 12 at 7pm. The fair also has $1 admission on opening day.
For free concerts, you must pick up an arm band at the Pepsi Grandstand Box Office 3 hours before the concert.
Blacc is a Grammy nominated artist known for providing vocals for Avicii's "Wake me Up" in 2013. The soul artist is now on his third solo album, Lift Your Spirit.
The SC State fair runs from October 12th-23rd at the fairgrounds on Rosewood Drive and George Rogers Blvd. A full listing of events and activities can be found on the fair's new website.
