With the current Covid-19 pandemic still going on, many wondered if the 80th annual “Sturgis Buffalo Chip” would be able to happen. Now we know that the city council has voted and is allowing the rally to continue. As long as local businesses, vendors and staff utilize PPE.
Shortly after this was announced, some news outlets realized that this does not include the rally attendees. Since this news broke, a few artists have decided to drop off the bill. They are Willie Nelson, Puddle of Mudd and ZZ Top.
While those 3 have opted not to play, there are still several that are still on the bill. Trapt, Drowning Pool, Buckcherry, Adelita’s Way and Smash Mouth are just a few. If you would like to see a complete lineup, you can go to buffalochip.com for their full schedule.
As of this morning July 23rd, South Dakota has had 8,077 confirmed cases and 119 deaths.
