Buffalo Chip Sturgis Rally Kickoff

Sturgis, SD (June 9, 2022): There’s no such thing as being fashionably late to the Sturgis Rally, so the Sturgis Buffalo Chip is blasting out of the gate right away with their Sturgis Rally Kickoff Party on Friday, August 5. The event includes entertainment from legendary ‘80s metal quartet Quiet Riot and the Black Hills’ own rock ‘n’ rollers Judd Hoos. In addition, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip is bringing in both new and returning events to the 2022 Best Party Anywhere, including the inaugural GUNFEST presented by GunBroker.com, Billy Lane’s Cool Hand Speedco Antique Hangout, Ultra4 Racing, and the Why We Ride Sturgis Rally Wrap Party. See the full announcement at BuffaloChip.com/EVENTS.

“The Kickoff Party is when our year-long spark of anticipation finally touches the powder keg,” said Sturgis Buffalo Chip president Rod Woodruff. “This night sets the pace for the entire nine days of music, motorcycles, freedom and friends. We hope all our friends will come join the fun.”

Famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop charts, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album “Metal Health”. Their follow-up album “Condition Critical” went double platinum, and the band continued to record and tour throughout their 25+ year history. Quiet Riot will keep heads banging all throughout the Buffalo Chip amphitheater August 5 at the Official Sturgis Rally Kickoff Party.
