The Minnesota State Fair has announced Miranda Lambert and NF as the two latest bookings for its 2020 Grandstand Concert Series.

Country star Lambert will play the State Fair on the opening night of Thursday, Aug. 27, while NF will pay a visit for his The Search Tour on the second Thursday, Sept. 3.

Lambert will be joined for her show with an as-yet-to-be-announced special guest, as the multiple Grammy and CMA-award winning artist kicks off the Great Minnesota Get-Together in style.

Michigan native NF, real name Nathan Feurstein, originally came up through the Christian music scene before making the jump to mainstream rap and hip-hop, surprising many in the music industry when his last two albums, Perception and The Search, topped the Billboard charts, the latter of which saw him beat Chance the Rapper to No. 1.

His show at the State Fair will be a mixture of $45 general admission, plaza-level standing-room-only tickets, and $35 tickets for reserved seating in the main stand.

Lambert's will be an all-seater, with tickets costing $40, $55 and $65 plus fees.

Tickets for Lambert's show go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, with NF tickets being made available at noon on Friday. Both can be bought at, by calling 800-514-3849, or by visiting the State Fairgrounds Ticket Office between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday.

They join acts already announced for the State Fair Grandstand Series including The Doobie Brothers, Tim McGraw, and Darci Lynne & Friends.
