“Some of the biggest electronic music acts in the world are set to throw the best Race Day party in town. You won’t find a better or more unique place to see an artist like Skrillex or Martin Garrix than the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Race Day. It’s going to be a blast for thousands of fans and a can’t miss event.” — J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway President
Skrillex has won a total of eight Grammy Awards, more than any artist in his genre. He’s sold over 10 million singles to date and performed 500 shows in 35 countries. In 2013, he was the most-played artist on SoundCloud and the fourth-most viewed artist on YouTube. His massive hit “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites” sold millions of copies and helped instigate one of the largest shifts in modern American music in recent memory, the galvanizing totem of a new youth movement. He is the owner of his own music label, OWSLA, the artist behind the score for the critically acclaimed movie “Spring Breakers,” and the force behind the futurist venture NESTHQ.com.
Martin Garrix is the smiling face behind of one of the most meteoric rises in EDM history. The Dutch superstar has already set precedents and scored landmarks at every corner of the music industry. He has made Billboard’s prestigious “21 under 21” list as well as Forbes “30 under 30” list and won an MTV European Music Award for Best Electronic Dance Act. His double platinum hit “Animals” has to date garnered more than 100 million streams on Spotify and over half a billion views on YouTube. With the launch of his own record label and a full studio album in the works, 2016 promises to be an epic year for this young adult whiz kid.
Zeds Dead is a Toronto-based dubstep/house act. They have an enormous catalogue that includes remixes for some of the biggest artists out there, and releases with the most credible labels in the game. They’ve accumulated hundreds of millions of views online and play live to hundreds of thousands of people annually.
DJ Mustard is an award-winning artist and mega producer who coined the “ratchet” sound, bringing a hot, new and different sound to hip-hop. In just three years, DJ Mustard has sold over 20 million singles and constructed a registry of hits for the likes of Tyga (“Rack City”), 2 Chainz (“I’m Different”), Young Jeezy (“R.I.P.”), Kid Ink (“Show Me”), Y.G. (“My HItta”), and nabbed collaborations with Fergie, Jennifer Lopez, Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, and more. Mustard executive produced YG’s debut album “My Krazy Life” which peaked at No. 2 on Billboard 200, No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop and No. 1 on the Rap charts. In 2015, he became the first artist to win both R&B/Hip-Hop Songwriter Of The Year and R&B/Hip Hop Producer Of The Year at the BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards.
