This may be even more proof that people are happy to put the winter season behind them. They're already looking forward to summer events like state fairs.

They call it the Great Minnesota Get-Together and it's not just the remarkable array of rides, foods, and vendors that draws people from all over the place. They always feature big-name performers across genres like country, rock, pop, etc., and this year is no different.

The Minnesota State Fair's Grandstand lineup of performers is out and people are buying tickets now. Here's a look at who will be there.
