Scheduled for this coming summer, the 2024 Hy-Vee Indycar Race Weekend will feature Post Malone’s first-ever live performance in central Iowa.
Hy-Vee has revealed that popular music artists Luke Combs and Post Malone will head up the star-studded entertainment lineup for next summer’s Hy-Vee Indycar Race Weekend, which will take place July 12-14, 2024. Entering its third year in 2024, the event offers an exciting combination of racing and live music at Iowa Speedway.
Combs will take the trackside Hy-Vee Stage on Saturday, July 13, before the first NTT Indycar Series race of the doubleheader weekend, while Post Malone will appear at the same venue on Sunday, July 14, following the final Indycar Series race of the weekend. Each concert will consist of a 90-minute performance in front of the main grandstands at Iowa Speedway. The concerts are included in each Saturday/Sunday Hy-Vee Indycar Race Weekend ticket. Fans also have the option of buying a Concert Pit Pass for access to the exclusive trackside concert viewing area, with passes expected to sell out quickly. Event weekend tickets and passes can be purchased online.

One of the biggest names in country music today, with multiple ACM and CMA Awards, including being named CMA Entertainer of the Year in both 2021 and 2022, Combs recently earned his record-breaking 16th consecutive No. 1 single, a cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” which earned him his seventh Grammy Award nomination.
The Indycar Race Weekend will feature Post Malone’s first-ever live performance in central Iowa. An eight-time diamond-certified Grammy Award-nominated artist, Malone is constantly reinventing his sound. This past June, he received the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal Davis Starlight Award.

We look forward to bringing these artists to Iowa and providing another outstanding weekend of entertainment.”
Other entertainment acts at the event will be revealed in the coming weeks.
This year’s weekend exceeded total attendance numbers from the inaugural weekend in 2022, drawing about 85,000 fans over three days. Tickets are on sale now for the event.
