According to the statement, the fair board is considering other musical acts.

Allen was set to headline Saturday August 19th. In a statement about the situation to Dakota Broadcasting, Fair Board manager Rachel Kippley simply said Allen is no longer scheduled to perform Saturday night and the Fair Board’s entertainment Committee would be considering other artists as a replacement.

Kippley would not comment on whether or not this decision had to do with Allen currently facing a civil lawsuit brought against him by a former manager accusing him of sexual and verbal abuse.
