“The party ain’t over ‘til it’s over,” says Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “Throughout our nine day festival, fans are treated to an onslaught of high-energy performers, so why would the last night be any different? All of these bands, Fuel, Alien Ant Farm and Lit have a blast on stage and that energy is truly contagious. It’ll be a Grand Finale worth sticking around for.”
All three bands shot into stardom in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, producing fun and edgy modern rock hits and amassing platinum records. Songs such as Fuel’s “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” Lit’s “My Own Worst Enemy” and Alien Ant Farm’s “Smooth Criminal” quickly made it into regular rotation on rock stations and remain there today. Combining these crowd favorites with revving motorcycles, Bikini Beaches, vendors and beer gardens should make Saturday night at the Buffalo Chip an energetic festival finale.
