DJ Hardwell Entertains Race Fans In Indy 500 Snake Pit

The Indianapolis 500 is just around the corner, and this year they'll welcome DJ Hardwell to perform in the Indy 500 Snake Pit. In the 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 poll, Hardwell was named the world's No. 1 DJ, and will share the stage at the Snake Pit presented by Miller Lite, with DJs NERVO and Dillon Francis.

"The Snake Pit presented by Miller Lite has become an extremely popular destination for younger fans during the Indianapolis 500," said J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway president. "Hardwell is one of the hottest electronic music DJs in the world and his appearance on Race Day is proof that the new Snake Pit features the hottest performers for fans who come to enjoy the music and the race. Adding NERVO and Dillon Francis to the musical line-up makes the Snake Pit a 'must see' event for electronic music lovers."

Robbert van de Corput, known worldwide as Hardwell, is the owner of the leading electronic dance music label, Revealed Recordings, and the youngest DJ ever to secure the coveted Top 100 DJs award. A native of Breda, Netherlands, Hardwell has dominated recent charts with a stretch of six consecutive No. 1 hits on the Beatport Top 100. Worldwide hits include "Spaceman," "Three Triangles (Losing My Religion)," "Countdown," "Jumper," "Apollo" and his highly-acclaimed collaboration with Dyro and Bright Lights "Never Say Goodbye." Additionally, his latest chart-topping anthem, "Dare You" featuring Matthew Koma, has gained worldwide attention from both DJs and fans alike.

Top ranked female DJs and native Australian sisters Mim and Liv Nervo, known worldwide by their stage name NERVO, began their own musical careers as songwriters and first hit it big in 2009 after co-writing the global hit "When Love Takes Over" for David Guetta and Kelly Rowland. The sisters also wrote songs for Ke$ha, Kylie Minogue and Armin Van Buuren before pursuing their own aspirations as performance artists.

Dillon Francis is a Los Angeles-based electronic music producer and D.J., who has broken through the throng of young music producers. A pioneer in the moombahton genre, Francis first signed with Mad Decent, releasing his first official EP, "Westside," in early 2011. His dancehall "Westside" and "Masta Blasta" became an underground sensation amongst the electronic dance community.
