Sturgis, SD (April 4, 2023): Sturgis Rally goers asked for something new, so they’re getting something nu, from the top of the food chain. The Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling® continues to provide new, soon-to-be-favorite experiences with its latest announcement – Limp Bizkit, the band that made nu-metal explode in popularity and sold millions of albums will rock the stage with classic metal rocker Lita Ford. Limp Bizkit and Lita Ford join an epic lineup of artists including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Koe Wetzel, Whiskey Myers, George Thorogood & The Destroyers and many more.

“Our fans crave unique, fun and wild concerts that make for parties they’ll remember for years to come, which made Limp Bizkit and Lita Ford on the same night an obvious, and not so obvious, choice,” said Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “Limp Bizkit is new to the rally, is a monster of nu-metal, and was instrumental in forming the entire genre. Pair that with an unquestionable rally favorite like Lita Ford, and you have a recipe for one wildly new Sturgis experience.”

Limp Bizkit created some of the most recognizable sounds of the late ’90s, masterfully combining aggressive hip-hop vocals and sonic instrumental experimentation. The result defined a whole genre—nu-metal—for years to come. Since its formation in 1995, the Florida group has sold over 40 million albums and continues to gain attention in the media for its unique live performances at some of the world’s largest music festivals. Fred Durst and the boys bring hits like “Break Stuff,” “Rollin’,” “My Way,” “Dad Vibes,” and more to the legendary Wolfman Jack Main Stage for the first time Monday, Aug. 7.

Lita Ford
