Nationally known headliners will perform free on the Chevrolet Main Stage at the 2019 State Fair of Texas in Dallas, September 27-October 20. Catch some of the best entertainers in the country with Chevrolet Stage’s lineup. Other venues throughout the fairgrounds also feature free concerts with admission to the fair.

Chevrolet’s concert series kicks off September 27 with an 8:30 p.m. concert by Rick Springfield. The 1980s power-pop icon is featured on “Flashback Friday,” held each Friday of the fair. Springfield is a Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, and musician whose iconic songs sold 25 million albums. His 17 Top 40 hits include “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” and “An Affair of the Heart.”

Jacquees performs September 28 at 2 p.m. His 2016 single B.E.D. stayed seven weeks on Billboard charts. He performs before the State Fair Classic game between Grambling State and Prairie View A&M. CAMEO, a soul-influenced funk group for over 40 years, take the stage after the game. Their 17 albums climbed charts like Billboard’s Top Ten. Founded and produced by lead singer Larry Blackmon, CAMEO received a Grammy nomination for “Word Up.”

Opening weekend keeps up the beat with Latin band La Maquinaria Nortena’s lively music at 5:30 p.m. September 29. Mixing modern and contemporary elements rooted in the northern music style of “Chihuahua,” they climbed iTunes and Billboard music charts from 2013 to 2015.
