The Sturgis Buffalo Chip music festival is a nine-day romp that holds up to its mission of being “The Best Party Anywhere.” Since its start in 1981, Buffalo Chip has featured top-tier artists and entertainment and has become a staple of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. For 2023, the series dates will run Aug. 4-13.
At the 2022 rally, we saw big names such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Buckcherry, Rob Zombie, Papa Roach, and many others. The 2023 lineup is off to a good start with these two classic rock bands, and we can’t wait to see what else the Chip has in store for the 2023 series. Tickets are currently available at Buffalo Chip’s website, and you can also request a band by clicking here.
Concerts and entertainment at the Chip are free with campground admission, which ranges from $60 for one day to $300 for nine days. VIP packages are also available and include perks such as free draft beer and buffet dinners, express check-in, social hours with Chip celebrities, and other extras.
