After generations of progression, the Snake Pit has become a space to relish in the diverse sounds of electronic music. With great musical talent showcasing their work for thousands of fans, this event is definitely something all electronic music lovers should attend at least once. The concert begins very early on Race Day morning, what better way to hype up attendees for the high-speed Indy 500 competition?! Right after noon, the music acts are eventually joined by the roar of dozens of race cars dashing around the track at approximately 230 mph. There truly is not a sight like this, fans are constantly left in awe as they observe “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” from the edge of their seats. Without a doubt, the Snakepit and Indy 500 Race create an incredibly unique environment and unforgettable scene.

The Snake Pit has a long, colorful history at Indiana Motor Speedway (IMS). Fans started to gather in the infield at IMS as early as the 1920s! But, the real partying didn’t start until the 1970s in the infield inside Turn 1 — this is the area that has became known as the infamous Snake Pit.

What exactly happened in those days in the original Snake Pit? It’s probably easier to describe what didn’t happen. Let’s just say almost anything went in the quest for a good time.

 

Streaking. Stripping. Booze. Brawls. Football. Frisbees. Music. Bikers. Students. The Snake Pit essentially felt like a combination of Woodstock and Spring Break for thousands of Midwesterners. But times and attitudes changed, as did the look of the Speedway. Grandstands were built inside Turn 1, which crimped the style of many in the Snake Pit. Unfortunately, the historic Snake Pit eventually faded away by the mid-1990s… But now it’s back, right on Turn 3! Still exemplifying the traditions that made it ultimate place to party years ago, our modern-day Snake Pit still has the attitude, spirit, and wildness of the original.
