The Best Party Anywhere® added three epic concerts and three unique events to this year’s 40th-anniversary celebration. Larger-than-life rock god Corey Taylor, world-famous rockers Buckcherry, and heavy metal superstars Drowning Pool are coming in fast and loud to the Buffalo Chip’s Sturgis Rally Music Lineup. In addition, the Chip is celebrating the return of the unbelievable Bell Brawl at the Buffalo Big Twin Stunt Show, the hair-raising Street Drag Invitational with Crazy John, and the debut of the Maiden Moto Art Show curated by Savannah Rose.
Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, said before the Rally started “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – this lineup for our 40th consecutive party will be one to remember,” “We can’t wait until everyone gets here to enjoy the lineup of artists and events we are thrilled to have as part of our 40th.”
Music and events on today at the Buffalo Chip
Cherry Bombs – Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021 7PM-8PM
If you like to break the rules, this performance from the “darlings of rock ‘n’ roll” is sure to keep your attention. Anything goes when the Cherry Bombs take over the stage with aerial stunts, fire arts, acrobatics, and tantalizing dance choreography. See them open for Corey Taylor Wednesday, Aug. 11.
Corey Taylor of Slipknot – Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021 7PM-8PM
Lose your mind and let go of a little pent-up crazy with the one-and-only Corey “Motherf**kin’” Taylor. The longtime frontman of hard rock acts Slipknot and Stone Sour is headed to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Wednesday, Aug. 11 as part of the tour supporting his debut solo album “CMFT.” Connect with Corey as he sings, growls, screams, shouts and raps his way through the night prior to the headlining performance from ZZ Top.

Calling all Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers! That Little Ol’ Band from Texas is returning to The Best Party Anywhere®! They’re Bad!

Classic rock megastars ZZ Top bring their legendary raunchy blues-rock boogie to the Chip’s Wolfman Jack Stage on Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021, and you’ll want to make sure you and your Cheap Sunglasses are close by when they do.
Don’t forget to get your Buffalo Chip Limited Edition Poster
2020 was an uncertain year. We’d gaze into the crystal ball and see only fog. This year is different. It shows a clear course for the future of 2021. So, we had Darren McKeag and Russell Murchie create two crystal ball-themed designs for the Sturgis Rally and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. Only 150 people will be able to get in on this extremely limited run of prints, so if you’d like to memorialize your trip to the Sturgis Rally with one, you’d better nab it now before they’re all gone!
