How many fans will be allowed to attend the Indy 500?
For the first time in three years, the Indy 500 will be at full capacity with the lifting of restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year there were 135,000 fans allowed in the 230,000-seat stands.
The infield was also reopened to fans. The Snake Pit festival will return on race day with a roster of EDM superstars in concert that includes Martin Garrix, Galantis, Steve Aoki and deadmau5.

There will be no restrictions for this year’s event, which will also benefit from the pre-race Carb Day and Snake Pit concerts that have been absent for the past three years.
