Fewer than 60 days remain until the kickoff of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and the number one rally destination is moving at breakneck speed to secure its best lineup yet. The Best Party Anywhere® has added three epic concerts and three unique events to its 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. The Chip’s video announcement and full band lineup so far can be seen at

“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – this lineup for our 40th consecutive party will be one to remember,” said Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “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. Fewer than 60 days left!”

Corey Taylor – Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021

The one-and-only Corey “Motherf**kin'” Taylor will make the Buffalo Chip audience lose their mind and let go of a little pent-up crazy when he takes the Wolfman Jack Stage by storm for the Chip’s 40th. 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.” He’ll sing, growl, scream, shout and rap all the way through the night prior to the headlining performance from ZZ Top. 

Buckcherry – Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021 

Buckcherry blast their way back into the Buffalo Chip concert lineup during the 2021 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. These seductively slithering rockers will be coming at the rally crowd with the crushing chords and familiar refrains of songs like “Crazy B****”, as well as tracks from their latest album when they take to the Wolfman Jack Stage on Saturday, Aug. 7. 

Drowning Pool – Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021

Drowning Pool

All inhibitions will plunge deep beneath the surface where they’ll be begging for breath when Drowning Pool opens up the first Saturday of the Best Party Anywhere on the legendary Wolfman Jack Stage. Prepare for their insane, heavy metal mayhem before a performance from Buckcherry. 

Street Drag Invitational with Crazy John – Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021

The sights, sounds and smells of motorcycles thundering by at speeds of up to 120 mph will raise the hair on the back of spectator’s necks and have them wanting more when racers peel off the drag strip line in the middle of The Chip’s legendary amphitheater. 

Bell Brawl at the Buffalo – Sunday, Aug. 8, 2021 

 The guys that throw down in the Bell Brawl at the Buffalo do things on big V-Twin motorcycles that literally must be seen to be believed. They’ll lay it all on the line in front of celebrity judges for FREE on Sunday, Aug. 8 from 3-6 p.m. at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s free-access CrossRoads.

Maiden Moto Art Show – Friday, Aug. 6 – Saturday, Aug. 14, 2021
