As part of State Fair Announce Week, the Nebraska State Fair named the 2019 concert lineup and revealed a new ticket option for State Fair concerts. Artists will be “bundled” by genre under one ticket price which includes gate admission, allowing concert-goers to save big.

“We are bringing fans the concerts they asked for under three genres: hot country, rock and red dirt,” said Lori Cox, State Fair executive director. “This new ticket format, combined with the largest all-star lineup in decades, is sure to be a State Fair experience no one will forget.”

“We focused on bringing a variety of artists based on what Nebraskans want to see,” Cox said. “Our experience is unlike any other concert plan you’ll make this year. You can see your favorite artist, fill yourself on once-a-year fair food and put your kids on the biggest carnival in Nebraska. And let’s not forget, we have the finest exhibition facilities in the country. The 150th birthday of Nebraska State Fair is a great excuse to come experience all you’ve been missing!”
