Buffalo Chip Stage

The stage and the is one of the big draws for both Buffalo Chip fans and performers. It's huge. And it's set out on the northern High Plains prairie where the frigid winds come come barreling down during most of the year. But during the rally in August, it's usually warm, with the tranqulity of the Milky Way beaming down overhead and some of the best bands in the world sending out earthquake-like vibes through the prairie sod.

From in front of the Buffalo Chip stage you can see Bear Butte, sacred to the Lakota and Cheyenne; and the Black Hills off to the west. Concert goers sprawl out everywhere. some are with their bikes. At some times there is mania in front of the stage at the Buffalo Chip. For more on the bands, see the schedule at The Chip.
