The Big Fresno Fair closes out its 2013 concert lineup this weekend. Here is a look at what to expect.

Tonight (Oct. 11)

Korn may not have invented the nu-metal genre, but they helped define it with a run of success during the late 1990s.

The Bakersfield band is back, with a new album, "The Paradigm Shift," which was released on Tuesday. On Monday night, they performed on the Jimmy Kimmel Live. Tickets are $30-$35.

Saturday, Oct. 12

Teen pop singer Zendaya plays the early show at noon.

Along with her music career, Zendaya is a Disney channel star and was featured on season 16 of "Dancing With the Stars" — the youngest contestant to be on the show. Her self-titled debut album was released in September. Tickets for the show are $10.

Hip-hop pioneer LL Cool J plays the evening show.

The rapper is celebrating his 30th year in the business. And while he has turned his attention to acting in recent years as special agent Sam Hanna on "NCIS: Los Angeles," he continues to write and perform music. His new album, "Authentic," was released in April. Tickets are $30-$35.

Sunday, Oct. 13

Antonio Aguilar Jr. serves as special guest for the fair's Mariachi Festival, which starts at 2 p.m. Aguilar is the son of the famous Mexican singer and actor Antonio Aguilar and brother of musician Pepe Aguilar. Tickets to the festival are free with fair admission.

Monday, Oct. 14

Darius Rucker may be best known for his stint in the rock band Hootie and the Blowfish, which released five studio albums and had six Top 40 hits. That is changing. Since 2008, Rucker has made a name for himself as a country artist. He was named the Country Music Association New Artist of the Year in 2009 — the first African American to do so. His fourth solo album, "True Believers," was released in May. Rucker plays at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30-$35.SHOW INFO
