I won't lie to you, I'm not a huge fan of the Iowa State Fair. It's a long drive, it's always hot, the beer is expensive, and the lines are always WAY TOO long. But there is one thing I really like about the Iowa State Fair:

THE FREE ENTERTAINMENT!

This year, the Iowa State Fair has a few metal bands that I will definitely be checking out. Even though the beer costs an arm and a leg, I'll cost average the night out with free admission. Here's a list of bands I think you should check out, all for free!

  • Queensryche, August 9th 
  • Faster Pussycat, August 10th
  • The Iron Maidens, August 11th
  • Hairball, August, 13th & 14th
  • Great White, August 15th
  • Autograph, August 17th
  • Paradise Kitty, August 18th.

It looks like a great year for the FREE stage at the Iowa State Fair. For more information, visit this link.

I'll see you there!
