2020 Sturgis Buffalo Chip Lineup So Far
(All Concerts Free with Camping)

Puddle of Mudd – Friday, Aug. 7, 2020

It’s too early to predict the forecast, but you should have your galoshes ready to wade through some of the biggest hard rock hits of the last couple decades when Puddle of Mudd kicks off the The Best Party Anywhere® during the 80th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The revitalized Kansas City, Missouri quartet will get the festivities underway.

The Takeover – Saturday, Aug. 8, 2020

Experience a one-two punch that’ll leave you seeing stars when The Takeover kicks off a heart-pounding night of entertainment in the Buffalo Chip amphitheater on Saturday, Aug. 8. Take your place ringside in the Kinison Playground for this sanctioned professional boxing event, brought to you by Team Certified Sports. Here, you’ll see some of boxing’s most ferocious competitors go toe-to-toe during two ABO title fights that will be broadcast live worldwide through Adversary Sports Entertainment.

Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sunday, Aug. 9, 2020

Three years. That’s how long Lynyrd Skynrd promised their Farewell Tour would last. Nearly three years later, the last show is right around the corner. After that, they are calling it quits. Forever. But because they love you and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip SO MUCH, the self-proclaimed Buffalo Chip house band decided to make an exception for YOU ONLY and no one else. On Sunday, August 9, 2020, you’re invited to a massive goodbye party for southern rock’s native sons to help bring an epic Buffalo Chip tradition to an end.

REO Speedwagon – Monday, Aug. 10, 2020

Take a trip down memory lane back to the good old days as you bask in the nostalgic glow of lighters waving in unison to the sounds of some of the biggest hits to fill arenas in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Whether you’ve been attending their shows for 30 years or you’re a brand new fan, when chart-topping classic rock favorites REO Speedwagon hit the Wolfman Jack Stage, you won’t be able to fight the warm, warm and fuzzy feelings anymore.

Willie Nelson & Family – Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2020

You don’t get many chances in your life to share a moment with a legend. But on Tuesday, Aug. 11, you can spend the evening with the one and only Willie Nelson & Family! Come along for one hell of a ride with the last of the outlaw legends by seeing Nelson & Family during the 80th anniversary of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally!

ZZ Top – Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020

Calling all Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers! That Little Ol’ Band from Texas is returning to The Best Party Anywhere®! They’re Bad, They’re Nationwide, and they’re coming to rock the Sturgis Buffalo Chip during the 80th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Classic rock megastars ZZ Top bring their legendary raunchy blues rock boogie to the Chip’s Wolfman Jack Stage on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, and you’ll want to make sure you and your Cheap Sunglasses are close by when they do.
