Sturgis Concerts Won’t Disappoint

For many the annual pilgrimage to biker nirvana is more than a week vacation to the grand entrance of South Dakota’s Black Hills and Custer Territory, it’s a spiritual journey and a chance to connect with old friends. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is also a rock music lovers dream week. IF you have enough cash, you can see the greatest rock legends, some of the newest rock up-and-comers and even Hollywood stars.

The most famous rock venue is The Buffalo Chip Saloon . Other bars and campgrounds have added music stages through the years, most notably The Broken Spoke. For years each have managed to bring in a stunning roll of great music.

Upstart Full Throttle Saloon burst onto the scene 11 years ago and has become one of the biggest party spots. Only open for 10 days out of the year (during the Rally) it’s run by Micheal Ballard, Jackyl’s front-man Jessie James Dupree,  and an enigmatic former radio personality Goat, who is the MC/DJ. FTS boasts 15,000 guests and party goers each day.

Buffalo Chip Saloon and The Broken Spoke Campground line-ups are pretty spectacular and Full Throttle delivers as well.
