The Chip® August Music Festival Hosts More Stages and Concerts Than You Can Handle
There’s a reason the Buffalo Chip’s August music festival is known as the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling™. With seven stages—each with its own distinctive theme and atmosphere—you are bound to find endless entertainment and activities to keep your party going around the clock.
Wolfman Jack Stage
As the centerpiece to the Chip’s August music festival, this legendary stage has played host to some of the music industry’s hottest performers, including Aerosmith, Tim McGraw, Ozzy Osbourne, Sheryl Crow and Rob Zombie. The Wolfman Jack Stage often invites Chipsters to ride their bikes into this famous amphitheater and trade in loud cheers for thunderous engine revving.
Bikini Beach Stage
Every day is paradise at Bikini Beach. This stage hosts some of the Chip’s best showcase bands and is home to wild events like the Homemade Bikini Contest. The double deck stage features a viewing platform which allows Chipsters to overlook all the activities. Since it’s located next to the swimming hole, you can also take in stage entertainment while relaxing on the beach or lounging deck, enjoying a drink from the cabana bar on the patio or showing off your best cannonball on the rope swing.
Just inside the West amphitheater entrance, under the big glowing buffalo skull, you’ll find the Kinison Stage, bar and dance floor. Named after late comedian and early Buffalo Chip performer Sam Kinison, the stage is home to a wide variety of high-energy showcase bands, side-splitting comedians, outrageous events and alluring dancers.
Knock back a couple cold ones with friends while taking in non-stop entertainment on the Buffalo Chip’s CrossRoads Showcase Stage. Beat the heat under the brand new extra large shade over the area in front of the stage while taking in nine days of killer music, crazy contests, electrifying events and sexy dance routines. The CrossRoads Stage is one of the Chip’s eight showcase stages and is located at the free-access CrossRoads destination just past the Big Engine Bar.
Hoyt Axton Showcase Stage
Experience sizzlin’ country and blues music and unforgettable events honoring America’s brave servicemen and women at the Buffalo Chip’s famed Hoyt Axton Stage. Located near the Chip’s South 40 RV Park in the historic barn, the Hoyt Axton Stage lives in an area that celebrates all things Americana--the Patriot Pavilion. Enjoy a variety of fun activities with your biker buddies, such as yard games, trivia and a special happy hour for military members.
The party never stops at Club Chip! Dance the night away next to smokin’ hot Buffalo Chip go-go dancers as live DJs spin the latest hip-hop, pop and dance hits. This premier Sturgis nightclub also features its own micro brew. With its huge variety of frothy craft beers, Club Chip will give you all the liquid courage you need to get out on the floor and bust a move!
Get in touch with your upscale adult or immature inner child every night during the Sturgis rally at the brand new Buffalo Chip SpeakEasy and Comedy Club at the back of the legendary amphitheater. The Comedy Club you know and love has now doubled in size to include a SpeakEasy Steakhouse and Wine Bar with beautiful waitresses and some of the finest cuisine available during the Sturgis rally.
Nestled between the Roadhouse Party Deck and the Jägermeister Steel Bridge, you’ll find some stellar showcase bands gettin’ down and dirty and sexy go-go dancers shakin’ it on the Roadhouse Stage. When you head up to grab a cold one on the Roadhouse Party Deck during set breaks on the Wolfman Jack Stage, the amazing Roadhouse Stage entertainment lineup combined with the area’s spectacular views of the amphitheater might just make you decide to park it for the night!
