Aretha Franklin, one of the most iconic voices in American music history, is one of the headliners for the Wisconsin State Fair.

2014 State Fair adds Aretha Franklin, Zendaya and more to Main Stage

Early this morning, the Wisconsin State Fair announced several new additions to their headliner lineup for the 2014 festival, including Zendaya, the Happy Together tour and one of the most iconic and influential voices in American music history, Aretha Franklin.

"Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin will hit the State Fair Main Stage Tuesday, Aug. 5. On a very different side of the musical spectrum, 17-year-old Disney pop star – and season 16 "Dancing with the Stars" competitor – Zendaya will perform Saturday, Aug. 2.

Meanwhile, the Happy Together tour – a '60s-fueled collaboration comprised of The Turtles featuring Flo and Eddie, Chuck Negron formerly of Three Dog Night, Gary U.S. Bonds, Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels and Gary Lewis & The Playboys – returns to the fair on Sunday, Aug. 3.

Tickets for all three shows go on sale Monday, April 21, at 10 a.m. on the State Fair's website, as well as at the State Fair ticket office. Tickets for the Happy Together tour and Zendaya cost either $25 and $35, while tickets for Aretha Franklin's performance cost $29 and $39. All Main Stage tickets include fair admission.

The State Fair also announced this morning that previously confirmed headliners Lady Antebellum will now be joined on stage on Saturday, Aug. 9 by Kristian Bush, the male half of the country duo Sugarland. Bush is currently in the midst of recording his debut solo album.

The 2014 Wisconsin State Fair runs from July 31 through Aug. 10.

An exceedingly lame lineup, to be sure.
