DJ-producer Excision will headline the Indy 500 Snake Pit, the annual electronic music festival presented at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The infield party on May 26 will showcase Excision and four other DJs before and during the 108th running of the Indy 500, track officials announced Tuesday.

Canadian artist Excision, otherwise known as Jeff Abel, has amassed more than 2 billion online streams for his music. Abel founded the Lost Lands music festival, presented each September in suburban Columbus, Ohio, since 2017.

The 2024 Snake Pit lineup also includes Timmy Trumpet, ranked No. 6 on DJ Mag’s 2023 list of Top 100 DJs; Sullivan King, who plays guitar during his DJ sets; Gryffin, who’s placed multiple albums in the Top 10 of Billboard magazine’s dance/electronic chart; and Dom Dolla, who reached the Top 10 of Billboard’s dance/electronic chart with 2023 single “Rhyme Dust.”

The Snake Pit event, which debuted in 2010, is staged inside Turn 3 at the track. The name harkens back to the infamous in-field ribaldry at the track from several decades ago.

Tickets, $55 to $160, are available at ims.com. VIP amenities include access to a viewing platform next to the stage, a private cash bar and air-conditioned restrooms.

An Indy 500 ticket is required for entry to the event, which is open to attendees 18 and older. Tickets for the 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 also are available at ims.com.
