SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The Jackson 5, now known as the Jacksons, have been added to the free concert lineup at the New York State Fair.

The state Department of Agriculture and Markets announced the Sept. 5 concert on Wednesday. Everclear, Rick Springfield, Melissa Etheridge, Meghan Trainor and Nick Jonas are among the others who will perform at this year’s fair, which runs from Aug. 27 through Sept. 7.

The Jacksons are celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Jackson 5, which now features three original members: Tito, Jackie and Marlon Jackson. Fair organizers say the group will perform its own songs and some from their late brother, Michael Jackson.

Nearly a million people go to the fair in Syracuse each year.

Advance tickets are $6. Regular daily admission is $10.
