HUNKS The Show  

Ladies– prepare for an entertainment experience unlike any that’s ever been at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip® before. Head straight for the Kinison Playground Stage prior to the headlining performance from Foreigner and strap yourselves in for the ride of your life. The no. 1 all-male revue will be taking to the stage, and you’re going to want to be so close you can feel the sweat spray off their chiseled bods.

 
Sturgis-Buffalo-Chip-Red-Sun-Rising-760.jpg

RED SUN RISING

The stirring sounds of Red Sun Rising will have you swearing you’ve just seen the light when their classic grunge-influenced alternative rock floods the Buffalo Chip Amphitheater with illuminating melodies and riffs. Rock and roll’s rapidly ascending sons will beam from the Chip’s Wolfman Jack Stage on Saturday, Aug. 4, charging you up for the Foreigner concert to follow it.

Sturgis-Buffalo-Chip-Well-Hung-Heart-760x372.jpg

WELL HUNG HEART  

Well Hung Heart is a quartet from Orange County, CA who plays brash, ballsy, boisterous, no-bullsh*t rock and roll, or, in other words, rock and roll as it’s meant to be. Fronted by the sassy and sultry Greta Valenti and driven by guitarist Robin Davey’s wall-sized bluesy rock riffage, the band has become a Sturgis Buffalo Chip favorite. In addition to their Main Stage performance, you can catch them on the Showcase Stages Friday, Aug. 3 through Tuesday, Aug. 7. See Buffalo Chip Daily Schedule for performance times and locations.

STURGIS-BUFFALO-CHIP-FOREIGNER-946x631.jpg

FOREIGNER

Go dizzy and develop Double Vision singing your lungs out to the massive catalog of catchy hits that’s made Foreigner one of the greatest selling bands of all time. These classic rock megastars will blast the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Wolfman Jack Stage into another galaxy during the first weekend of the music festival Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, and when they’re done you’ll swear it’ll Feel Like the First Time you’ve been to a concert so good.

Helping with Horsepower™

Helping with Horsepower, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, that empowers and encourages women and girls who are at risk or are victims of abuse. The organization has developed several programs that have shown proven results including their SpiritHorse Program, Entrepreneur Experience and the nationally recognized Helping With Horsepower Bike Rebuild Program. Founder Laura Klock explains: “Using riding and racing as a parenting tool with my two daughters, I have experienced firsthand how motorcycling can teach us not only about ourselves, but also powerful life lessons. Our hope for this project is to encourage and transform these girls by repairing what has been damaged on a motorcycle, and also in their lives.”
