2019 & 2020 Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Party Passes

Let Loose for the Lowest Price by Making Your Reservation Early!

Everyone knows something big, bold, wild, weird and fun is sure to happen at the Chip. It has every year since 1981.

Every year the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling® delivers something new as well as something that brings you back to your roots. You’ve seen the biggest names in music, daredevils fly across the amphitheater and through a tunnel of fire, the rally’s baddest bikes, and moto-hijinks and races harkening back to the days before bikers were kicked out of Sturgis City Park. You’ve brought and made many friends. And though you don’t have to admit it to your coworkers back home, maybe, just maybe, you’ve partied in your underwear or joined in on a real-life burping competition.

So what kind of craziness does 2019 have in store for you? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to reserve your passes now! Because no one is more surprised than us to see what’ll happen next!

Welcome Home Bikers®

We just make it possible for you to stay so you don't party too much, then hit the highway (or have the highway hit you).

2020 Passes to The Chip® during the 80th Sturgis Rally

If we’re not careful, it’s easy to stuff our lives full of mundane moments and mediocre memories.

The truth is that only a handful of places in the world actually allow us the freedom to escape the repetition and responsibilities of day-to-day life, make a permanent mark on our souls and send us back to reality changed people.

Visiting the Taj Mahal, running with the bulls in Pamplona, hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon–these are “trophy trips” worthy of showing off to friends.

But if you’re a motorcycle and music enthusiast, the biggest trophy of them all is right around the corner…the party at the Buffalo Chip during the 80th anniversary of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally!

“At first I was a little nervous about spending the money when the bands hadn’t been announced yet, but then my friend told me that the Chip’s been doing this for well over 30 years now, and they know how to throw a good party. I bought my passes and ended up having the time of my life. Best thing I’ve ever done. I go to a lot of concerts and there’s nowhere else you can see shows like this for under 20 bucks a day. And even if there was, with everything else going on, it could of been a bucket of crud up there on stage. Woulda still been worth it.”
