The Washington State Fair’s End of Summer Bash – a Washington Legends Tribute Music Event – is Sept. 4.

The free, all-ages festival will feature three iconic Washington bands/artists – Heart by Heart, The Spazmatics, and Randy Hansen.

In 2013, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honored the talents and contribution of the original six members of Heart: Ann and Nancy Wilson, Howard Leese, Roger Fisher, Steve Fossen and Mike Derosier. Heart By Heart’s mission is simple – to create music that is authentic, passionate and true to Heart’s original recordings.

The Spazmatics: The Ultimate 80’s New Wave Show brings all the awesome songs and geeky dance steps from the ′80s. Complete with high-water pants, pocket-protectors and nerdy glasses, The Spazmatics recapture all the best of the worst.

Randy Hansen is regarded as one of the Jimi Hendrix impersonators and one of the few players officially recognized by the Hendrix family.

Admission into the grandstand is free with fair gate admission. Food and drink tickets will be available on-site for purchase.
