Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Deadmau5, Diplo And GRiZ Spinning May 27
Known as the “Snake Pit,” it has some 200,000 people who maybe watch an occasional car turn a lap but is really a huge bash that has a water slide, DJs and an overall huge social atmosphere.
The 2018 music lineup is comprised of top DJs Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Deadmau5, Diplo and GRiZ. They will perform (spin, dance, etc.) in the infield adjacent to Turn 3 of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval during the 102nd Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil on Sunday, May 27.
“The Indy 500 Snake Pit presented by Coors Light has become a phenomenon in both the music and sporting worlds, producing a sold-out event two years running,” said IMS President J. Douglas Boles.
“This year’s concert will feature another world-class lineup ready to party with more than 30,000 Turn 3 fans, showing once again that Race Weekend offers fun and unforgettable opportunities for everyone.”

All Snake Pit ticketholders must be at least 18 years old and hold a valid Indy 500 general admission or reserved seat ticket. Packages that include Race Day general admission tickets are available.

“Watching the Indy 500 Snake Pit presented by Coors Light grow over the past few years has been amazing,” said IMS Senior Director of Music and Entertainment Kyle Krisiloff.
“The partnership with React Presents has proven to be a match made in heaven, producing an event that brings diehard fans from around the great state of Indiana out in waves. It is definitely one of the biggest daytime dance events in the United States, and we couldn’t be more proud of the lineup we have put together in 2018.”
