WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — The Big E is just a few months away, and officials are starting to announce the entertainment lineup. The Big E is New England’s largest fair, and also the fifth largest fair in North America.
“BIG NEWS,” organizers wrote on The Big E Facebook page Monday morning. “DJ Paris Hilton is coming to The Big E! Yes, you read that right. She’s closing out the 99th Fair with a set on the Court of Honor Stage. Bring your dancing shoes!”
Hilton released her first album “Paris” in 2006. Her second album is due out soon.
Other performers slated to play The Big E include Kansas, Ace Frehley (of the rock band Kiss), Alabama, Jacob Whitesides, and Bridgit Mendler. You can stay on top of all of The Big E concerts here.
“We take pride in the variety of music offered at The Big E every year,” John Juliano, Eastern States Exposition director of Special Events, said. “At the beginning of the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) boom, we had DJ Pauly D perform – a move that proved to be a big success, attracting thousands of fans to the Fair.”
“When searching for an EDM act for The Big E this year, Paris was an obvious choice. Paris Hilton is a household name and has established herself as a successful DJ, being a favorite in all of the top Las Vegas venues and around the world,” Juliano said.
The fair runs from September 18 through October 4. You can get ticket information here.
