Remember when we were all wondering who was going to play the Buffalo Chip when the pandemic kept rearing its ugly head? It turns out there are plenty of bands who would love the opportunity to entertain the masses at the 80th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Just confirmed: Southern rock greats Molly Hatchet and classic rockers the Guess Who is coming to the Chip!

Earlier in an official statement from the Buffalo Chip stated, "The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has been an event built by bikers for bikers. So as long as the riders want to come, the 80th Sturgis Rally is on for 2020. The Black Hills region and countless area businesses will be hosting the event, just as they’ve done for 79 years."

While some bands scrubbed their tour for the year, these artists have committed to performing.

  • August 7 - Flaunt Girls / Molly Hatchet
