Anyone who enjoys the music on Lite 98.7 in the Mohawk Valley can get an up-close and personal look and listen to some of their favorite artists live, and free of charge, this August and September at the New York State Fair.

We recently covered the various ways you can save big bucks at the Fair on special advance tickets for admission, food, and rides through Etix. The savings continue through the many free shows at the Fair’s Chevy Court stage.

The Chevy Court shows have become so popular, they eclipse paid concert events in in attendance. Approximately 35,000 attended a Bruno Mars shows in 2011. Another 36,000+ saw the Steve Miller Band in 2015.

Here are a few of this year’s shows that could be huge:
