Dr. Dog will play on a free stage at the 2014 State Fair
Don't have enough ducats to pay for Minnesota State Fair admission and a ticket to Fall Out Boy? The great MN get-together's got you, dawg. And they've got Dr. Dog. The Philly retro rockers with a hint of psychedelia lead the free stage entertainment this August 21 to September 1.

In all, there are more than 900 shows gracing the stages of varying sizes around the small city where the State Fair takes place. Below, we've gathered the top lineups for evenings of deep-fried root beer floats, and free music.

Is Scott Stapp really going by "The Voice of Creed"? I certainly hope so.


Wow, great lineups. I'd rather watcha a four wheeler crush the skull of my only child on christmas morning.


The voice of Creed? Is the warm up act "Nails on a Chalkboard?"

Dr. Dog at First Ave was one of the best shows I've seen all year. Can't wait! I'd pay $50 to see them!
