Soon the sleepy South Dakota city of Sturgis (population 6,800) will become the music capital of the Midwest!  There may also be a motorcycle or two.

We know from listening to the chatter from the crowds at our weekly Bike Night at Sickies Garage, there are many many motorcycles from Bismarck/Mandan that will soon be heading south for the Rally.

How many people can you expect to run into in Sturgis?

August 6th-15th 2021, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is a 10 day/night rider celebration.  To date tabulating the entire ten day festival, 2015 packed in the most total bodies with 739,000 people attending. Generally the first Sunday of the rally is the most attended day with well over 60,000 attending that day alone.  That's why you'll see Kid Rock performing on the first Sunday of the 2021 edition.  I imagine by the final Sunday, Sturgis has grown mighty tired of seeing your face and wish you'd get the heck out of their town.  Probably why final day entertainment includes Insane Clown Posse.  Nothing says get out to me more than an ICP show.

So who's going to hitting the stage for "The Ride. The Roar. The Rally."? Glad you asked- here's 24 artists that will sweating it out with y'all at Sturgis.
