Can We Talk About The Music Lineup At The Iowa State Fair???

Corn. The Hawkeyes. Breakfast Pizza. Trent.

These are a few of the things the state of Iowa is known for. I’ve been there once, briefly, to produce some Rough N Rowdy videos, and it seemed very nice. I’ve heard everyone there is super kind, as well, which you just gotta love! What I wasn’t aware of is the fact that they throw a fucking RAGER of a State Fair.

Back in Jersey, I’d go to the State Fair every year. I always had a good time. Play some games, dunk a clown, get some fun fair food, get a caricature drawn…

…and hit the candy stand on the way out.

In Iowa, apparently you go to the State Fair, and you see The Chainsmokers, Slipknot, Zac Brown Band, Toby Keith, Dan + Shay, Foreigner, Luke Bryan, Pentatonix, Hootie & The Blow Fish.

What??? What’s the deal there?! You folks in Iowa running a fair or motherfuckin Cornchella?! There’s gotta be a combined BILLION streams between all of those artists and they’re all playing the IOWA STATE FAIR?!

Listen – no disrespect to Iowa. I love Iowa. I live with Iowa’s Biggest Baby, I’m a converted Hawkeyes fan, nobody loves Iowa more than me. I’m just flabbergasted at the lineup for this year’s Iowa State Fair, to put it lightly. I even read the bill to Trent last night, who informed me that while Iowa regularly goes hard for their State Fairs, this is even a bit more than usual. Bananas. Or, well…corn. Corn.
