Rising Indie Pop Artist Lizzy McAlpine to Perform at The Great New York State Fair

Rising star Lizzy McAlpine will take to the Chevy Park Experience Stage on Friday, September 2 at 2 p.m. at the Great New York State Fair.

The 22-year-old is gaining momentum in the indie/folk music realm. She amassed a following of more than 333,000 people on TikTok early in the pandemic. Her debut album, “Give Me a Minute,” released in August 2020, has since been streamed millions of times on Spotify. Her second album, “five seconds flat,” was just released two months ago.

“We’re delighted to have Lizzy McAlpine join our array of performers during the Chevrolet Concert Series, keeping things fresh for music fans,” said interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey. ““From the most-talked about new artists to oldies but goodies, 80s and 90s rock staples, to pop music, hip hop and R&B, the New York State Fair has a concert – or several – to suit any music fan’s preferences.”

All concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series are free with Fair admission. Concerts performed at Chevy Park stage in the New York Experience Festival Grounds (formerly known as The Experience Stage) are located beyond the Midway. All concerts at the Fair are sponsored by Chevrolet.
