INDIANAPOLIS, IN–This Memorial Day Weekend Indy-native Topher Jones will be performing at the renowned Snake Pit presented by Miller Lite alongside EDM heavyweights Afrojack and Diplo during the 97th Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 26 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
In the past year Topher Jones has been taking the EDM world by storm with Beatport chart-topping hits like his college anthem ‘Brohammer,’ which was featured on legendary producer Gareth Emery’s Best of 2012 Mix, ‘Hello Chicago,’ a regular hit at Chicago Bulls games, and his remix of Tritonal & Kaeno’s ‘Azuca’ that jumped 40 spots on Beatport’s Electro House chart in less than a week. With a steady stream of releases on Ultra, OWSLA, Dim Mak, Garuda, Spinnin, and successfully headlining his first international “Hello North America Tour,” Topher’s proven that he’s a force to be reckoned with. Even Billboard recognized the rising stars recent accomplishments, placing him at No. 4 on their Next Big Sound chart late last month.
Though now residing in Chicago, Topher grew up in Indiana attending high school in Zionsville and graduating from DePauw University. While he’s been to many sporting events all over the world, this will be his first Indy 500.
“I can’t think of anything more American than the Indy 500,” Topher Jones said. “So there’s nowhere else I’d rather be than in the Snake Pit pumping up that crowd!”
Located inside Turn 3 in the massive IMS infield, the Snake Pit will open at 7 a.m. on Race Day and will rock IMS until the checkered flag waves. Any fan with a Race Day ticket and free Snake Pit wristband will be admitted. Watch the video below and visit www.indy500snakepit.com for more details!
