The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has named the performers for the Indy 500 Snake Pit concert, which will take place the morning of the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500. Electronic music artists Zedd and Marshmello will headline with event with WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Ric Flair serving as the special emcee.

The two headlining acts will be supported by EDM artists RL Grime, Action Bronson, Adventure Club and The Trap House. Tickets for the May 28 event are on sale now.

"The Indy 500 Snake Pit presented by Coors Light has earned its place as one of the biggest and best Race Weekend parties and this year's lineup of artists is going to take things to a whole new level," said IMS President Doug Boles. "On Race Day, the infield inside Turn 3 will once again fill with thousands of fans ready to cheer on some of the world's best EDM acts and adding the iconic Ric Flair to help hype up the atmosphere will make 2017 even more memorable."

The Snake Pit performances will begin at 7:00 a.m. on race day with the Indy 500 beginning at 12:00 p.m.

IMS announced earlier this month that country music star Keith Urban will perform the day before the race as part of the Firestone Legends Day Concert.
