Sam Kinison to Def Leppard - Sturgis Rally Music at the Buffalo Chip

Legendary performers have like Sam Kinison have screamed their way into the legend that is the Buffalo Chip. Def Leopard was one of the biggest shows ever. Ross & Rotten are perennials. Sturgis Music List of past Buffalo Chip performers.

The World's Biggest Party

Masses of people at the night concerts are one of the things that makes the Buffalo Chip so appealing. Lots of bikers come back year after year. Some even camp elsewhere and still buy a ticket so they don't miss the music.

It's a combination of bands and bikes that draws some of the best musicians in the world. Musicians who want to play in front of one of the most crazed crowds they'll ever stand before.

It all adds up to our top recommendation for music at the Sturgis Rally. And we'll be there again in 2004.
