Midstokke Brings Soaring Solos and On-Stage Shenanigans to August Music Festival

Brace Yourself for a Rock Blitzkrieg during Band’s 10-Year Anniversary Bash

You’ll get every ounce of party you deserve when Midstokke brings its intoxicating mix of in-your-face rock and melodic blues to the Chip’s August music festival. One glimpse of this band’s outlandish outfits and wild stage antics will draw you in, and one listen to its members’ high-energy solos will have you hooked! If you’ve seen this Seattle-based four piece before, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet, because they’ll be pulling out all the stops on the Chip’s showcase stages in 2014 to celebrate their ten-year anniversary.

Midstokke is a band notorious for being just as wild off stage as they are on. No matter the temperature, it’s always easy to spot Midstokke by the horned, hairy helmet and long fur coat worn by frontman, Steven Douglas.

“We carry the attitude that ‘life is short, live it fast,’ and we know that this life can be tough on everyone at one point or another,” says Douglas. “When people see us and listen to our music, we want to give them an escape from the mundane day-to-day existence that so many feel through our big soulful classic hard rock sound.” 

Midstokke draws its influence from a long, eclectic list of celebrated blues and rock artists including Robert Johnson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Black Crowes, The Allman Brothers, Aerosmith, Deep Purple and U2. But make no mistake, this band’s Sturgis concerts will bring you a distinctive sound that’s truly its own!

You haven’t had the Authentic Sturgis Experience™ unless you’ve caught a performance by Midstokke at the Legendary Buffalo Chip, so don’t miss your chance to party with them during this historic year in their career. Check out the Chip’s daily event schedule and Reserve you passes now!
