Nebraska State Fair Announces First Concert of ’24 Fair Season

The first of seven concerts announced for the ’24 Nebraska State Fair season sets us on the road to fun. Midwestern rapper and prolific Tik Tok performer Yung Gravy headlines a show at State Fair, with special guest Tayler Holder August 31.

State Fair Executive Director Jaime Parr, “We want to have something for every musical taste. Yung Gravy has over 6 billion streams and sold more than 5 million units in his career. He has a powerful reach with younger audiences.”

Some of Gravy’s special recipes include song lyrics that can be pretty saucy.

“Gravy’s show at Nebraska State Fair will be all Gravy which may contain lyrics some will find inappropriate.” Nebraska State Fair Events and Entertainment Director Karli Schulz said. “The energy will be electric, but I don’t have any concerns about this event.”

Early Bird Pricing Until December 22.

The first announced show of the Nebraska Lottery Concert Series outside at the renovated Anderson Auto Field features special Early Bird Pricing.  Ticket prices for the show are $10 off regular price from on sale Friday, December 8 until December 22.

“We wanted to do something special for guests.” said Parr. “Saving money is always popular.”

The best way to know Gravy is to ask him.

“Who is Gravy?” he asks: “Who was Gravy before? I’m a Soundcloud rapper from the Midwest, but the gravy got a bit more refined. I took some time to perfect my craft, and now the ingredients are top-shelf, the technique is patented, it’s cooked with a little extra love; but it’s still the same, smooth Gravy, baby.”

As a live phenomenon, Gravy has sold out tours in Australia and New Zealand in addition to packing venues coast-to-coast in North America with sellouts at both the Hollywood Palladium and New York’s Terminal 5. August 31 Yung Gravy with special guest Tik Tok star Tayler Holder, whose music has gained over one billion likes, come to Nebraska State Fair. Tickets go on sale December 8 at and
