The OC Fair & Event Center has finalized the live-music schedule for this summer's fair, with a decade-spanning lineup that includes British Invasion pop, 1980s new wave and Orange County-based punk.

Offspring and Adolescents open the main concert series at the Pacific Amphitheatre on July 11, with subsequent shows almost every night through Aug. 10. LeAnn Rimes, Ziggy Marley, the Go-Go's, Jeff Foxworthy, Bad Religion, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Deep Purple and X are among the others scheduled to appear.

The July 20 show, dubbed "The Happy Together Tour," features a slew of 1960s and '70s veterans: the Turtles, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels, Gary Lewis and the Playboys and members of Herman's Hermits, Three Dog Night and Grand Funk Railroad.

The fair also offers a concert series at the Hangar that features mostly tribute acts, with the Beatles, Michael Jackson, U2, Prince and Journey among the celebrated artists.
