2020 stole from us what should have been another uninterrupted, wild summer filled with concerts and events. But the past is what it is – and we can ride into the future confident that we will have no shortage of entertainment this year as fans and artists alike are itching to return to what they love most – GETTING LOUD!
And really – what event is louder than Sturgis?
From August 8th to the 15th 2021 headliner after headliner will pile in to entertain the chrome and leather clad patrons who will no doubt file into Sturgis, South Dakota by the thousands. Buffalo Chip not only is home to these major shows, but also features amenities such as camping (both tent and RV), and cabin rentals during the weeklong excursion.
The headliners at the Buffalo Chip this year are going to be incredible – and they kick off with none other than the original American Badass himself – Kid Rock! Since his debut album “Devil Without A Cause” Kid Rock has found a way to remain loyal to his fan base and his style. With his often…Cocky…sound, Kid Rock will be sure to entertain at an event like this. I can only imagine his entrance onto the stage with two middle fingers held proudly in the air as Bald Eagles swoop down to deliver ice-cold Busch Lights nestled securely in American flags. If it’s one thing the biker community loves as a whole – it’s freedom. And I can’t think of a more badass way to kick off the show than with a performance by a man who literally lives his whole life as freely as possible.
More headliners are being announced as the event draws closer, but other notable acts include ZZ Top, From Ashes to New, P.O.D., Shinedown, Black Label Society, and a host of others that will pepper the Black Hills with the sounds of rock n’ roll music that’s been missing for a year.
So get out to Buffalo Chip this summer – you’ll regret it if you don’t! From over 39 years’ experience in throwing mega parties, 25+ bars on site, 24/7 gas station with 93 Octane fuel, paved roads, not to mention a locally owned, family-run business (and really, who isn’t in the mood to support local these days? Fuck the corporate giants!) – they’ve got it all! I, for one, am excited to get out there and cover some of these acts and experience the freedom of being able to raw-dog air again for the first time since Tiger King graced our screens during the first part of quarantine.
