And just like that, summer officially starts in the circle city. The Indianapolis 500 kicks off a series of events that define the summer season in Hoosier-ville. The heat, the sun, the constant wonder if it will actually rain, and of course, the unavoidable farmers tan lines – caused by the constant uncertainty of really not knowing it will rain or not!
The 2019 edition of the infamous Snake Pit couldn’t ask for better weather. The morning overcast cleared around the time the green flag was waved and the sky provided enough clouds to not overheat the hearts that thump throughout turn 3 of the Indianapolis Motor Speed Way. The Snake Pit class of 2019 was initiated by Ricky Retro, followed by electro-deep house DJ Chris Lake (personal favorite), next Illenium dropped his classic uplifting beats before the Pre-race traditions and green flag allowed the Indy 500 drivers take over the track.
The music resumed with Alesso taking over the decks. He’s hour and a half set fueled up the energy and brought back to life the rookies that were a little too drunk by the end of Chris Lakes’ set – we’ve all been there. Skillex took over as race day came close to it end. He’s music kept up with the roaring of the cars as they approached their finals turns and the energy throughout the track cheered the victory of Simon Pagenaud. Our Snake Pit will always deliver an incredible time, generate memories that will leave forever; specially the ones that some might forget. Wether the 2019 edition kicked started your summer festivities or provided you with major FOMO, rest assure that better planning (on your part) for the 2020 Indianapolis 500 Snake Pit is undeniable. Check out the 2019 Snake Pit Presented by Coors Light SQUAD:
How are you celebrating your Memorial Day Weekend?
This past weekend, Swedish House Mafia reunited for three historic sold-out nights at Stockholm’s Tele2 Arena, breaking the venue’s attendance record with over 115,000 fans attending the shows. See footage of the epic performance HERE.
Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso gave fans everything that has made Swedish House Mafia one of the most compelling live acts in the world – a stunning production, their classic hits such as “Don’t You Worry Child,” “Save The World,” and “One” plus a special first listen of some brand new music.
Fans from around the world travelled to be a part of the spectacular shows and were treated to a massive production featuring a 54 metre long and 17 metre high screen, a vast floating stage, three giant circular lighting rings creating Swedish House Mafia’s signature logo and three huge circles of fire that were suspended above the packed crowd.
Swedish House Mafia’s story so far has been one of amazing highs, with the trio achieving global success that propelled them to the forefront of dance music. Despite later facing difficult times that saw the breakdown of friendships along the way, Swedish House Mafia has put the past behind them, coming back together as artists, friends and family. Their return to their hometown marks the beginning of the next chapter for the iconic trio.

ULTRA Music Festival’s new home on Virginia Key presented new and timely challenges to implement conscious environmental practices. ULTRA’s ecological commitments primarily focus on pollution prevention, nature preservation, waste reduction, community engagement, responsible resource strategies, and traffic mitigation. By minimizing any potential environmental impacts that may result from production, ULTRA will soon become an example for festivals around the world to follow. Following the festival’s conclusion, the Miami Seaquarium took to Twitter to commend the locations of the speakers and sound levels, reassuring concerned environmentalists of the safety of their animals post-event.
“Through its new sustainability initiatives, event organizers maintained the event grounds in good condition throughout the weekend. All crews, patrons and volunteers observed the event’s Leave No Trace initiative by keeping dance floors clear throughout the event and even usingpocket ashtrays provided by organizers to reduce cigarette litter. Cleaning crews worked tirelessly through the night following each event day and to ensure that Historic Virginia Key Beach Park and most of the surrounding perimeter areas were clean by 5:00AM.” – ULTRA Music Festival
“The required environmental management and remediation plan, not required of any other music festival to occur at these locations, was prepared, finalized and delivered to the City of Miami on time on January 28, 2019. During the proceeding months, weeks, and days leading up to the event, Ultra Music Festival has stood tall and worked with Cardno to meet environmental requirements of their license agreement, including construction, deconstruction and during the event on March 29 – 31, 2019.” – Cardno
“At all times during the production, event organizers operated real time compliance monitoring for noise impacts at both festival sites and in the surrounding areas. In our experience, this is unprecedented for similar events.” –Trinity Consultants
With the City of Miami, City of Miami & Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue working tirelessly to make the event and its attendees as safe as possible, 36 arrests – albeit mostly preventative ones – were made over the weekend, making the event one of the safest editions to date.
