Collective Soul is adding its name to the growing roster of legendary rock greats and emerging megastars playing at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip this August. The alt-rock heavyweights will take to the main stage at the Chip’s 33rd annual Motorcycle and Music Festival on Sunday, Aug. 3, prior to a performance from classic rockers, Lynyrd Skynyrd.
“The music festival lineup this year is just amazing,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President and CEO. “We’ve really been working hard to bring our guests the best of rock along with some of the top names in pop today. Collective Soul is the icing on our layer cake.”
