Paso Robles
Fair announces concert headliners
 Full lineup expected by Memorial Day
The 2022 California Mid State Fair, which is set for July 20-31, has started to announce headliners for the Bud Light Seltzer Concert Series. These concerts are held at the Chumash Grandstand Arena nightly with the Country Rodeo and Monster Trucks being held the last two nights of the fair. More free concerts are held at the Frontier Stage and Mission Square with an- nouncements of these acts expected soon.
“We’re so very happy to be back in 2022! After being forced
to cancel in 2020, and then have a modified fair in 2021, it feels really good to once again bring back the big names to Paso Robles. We have worked, and continue to work, very hard on partnering with some of the biggest artists in the music industry. Everyone is very excited for the last two weeks in July,” said Tom Keffury, fair spokesman.
Grammy award winning artists Dan + Shay will

first time at the
California Mid

Awards for Duo of
the Year, and many more. Following the recent release of their fourth al- bum “Good Things”, which includes the record breaking song “10,000 Hours (with Justin Bieber)”, Dan

Another first time performer

albums, “Kane Brown” and “Experi- ment” have landed him on the New York Times Top 10 Best Albums

the music industry, will perform at
the California
Mid State Fair for the first time on July 21. Rucker

“In the coming weeks we will be announcing rock and Hispanic music shows, rodeo and monster truck shows, plus our free stage line-ups and our Evening of Music & Wine artist,” said Keffury, who
