The Wednesday night show is set to feature rock with organizers teasing that they will be announcing two additional bands that will perform that night in the coming weeks.
This year's Sturgis Buffalo Chip music festival will be taking placing from August 2nd through August 11th and will include sets from Kid Rock, Toby Keith, ZZ Top, Halestorm, Brantley Gilbert, Queensrÿche and Sublime with Rome.
"Known worldwide, Mastodon is considered to be one of the greatest metal bands of their generation," says Rod Woodruff of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. "Their powerful shows are the exact reason fans are excited to see them at the Chip for the first time this summer." More info on the festival
