Snoop Dogg performs onstage last month in Atlanta. He will perform at this year's Illinois State Fair in Springfield.

Rap legend Snoop Dogg is coming to the Illinois State Fair in Springfield.

Organizers announced Thursday that Snoop Dogg and Friends will perform Aug. 16 at the Grandstand.

No acts have been announced for this year's Du Quoin State Fair.

Snoop Dogg has been performing for two decades. He's got award-winning albums and songs, hit television shows, films, product lines and a record of philanthropy.

His 17 studio albums since 1993 have sold more than 35 million copies and been nominated for nearly 20 Grammy Awards.

"Snoop Dogg Presents Bible of Love" is his most recent album. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Other acts announced for the State Fair's Grandstand are the a cappella group Pentatonix and the country duo Dan & Shay.

Tickets go on sale later this spring.
