Aloe Blacc Joins the SC State Fair Concert Lineup

August 23, 2016 (Columbia, SC) – Grammy nominated, Aloe Blacc will kickoff the South Carolina State Fair’s concert lineup on October 12th at 7pm. Aloe Blacc was recruited after Rachel Platten’s management canceled her show date at the fair.

With “Wake Me Up”—the 2013 mega-hit he sang and co-wrote for Swedish DJ Avicii and saw climb to #1 in 22 countries across the globe—Aloe Blacc proved himself a singer/songwriter with an irresistible power to capture the complexities of human emotion. Now with his third solo album Lift Your Spirit the rapper-turned-singer pushes further into a folk/soul/pop fusion that’s both undeniably joyful and eye-opening in message.

“We are excited to add such a talented and dynamic artist to our lineup,” said South Carolina State Fair General Manager, Gary Goodman. “We always strive to offer our patrons a mix of genres with our lineup.”

Tickets go on sale online at SCStateFair.org, Wednesday, September 7 at 10 a.m.
