Once again, audiences will share in the festivities that the Full Flex Express imparts across Canada this coming summer. The tour that recently rumbled through several provinces, conceived and headlined by everyone’s favorite EDM rock star Skrillex, is slated to once again feature artists bridging the genre spectrum, showcasing them in unique pairings and venues. Drawing inspiration from 1970’s Festival Express, the artists will arrive in every major city on a private passenger train, collaborating and inspiring one another as they make the trek. Tickets to the unique concerts at each stop go on sale October 12 and will be available until Christmas at a discounted $49.95 rate. Lineup, venues and full ticket price details are to be released January 8th.
The Full Flex Express exemplifies Skrillex’ ever-evolving approach to touring, slowing down the breakneck pace of the past couple years in order to curate and create some remarkable, unique experiences throughout the year. The journey starts with Nashville’s With Your Friends Festival, was assembled by Pretty Lights and Skrillex and featuring performances by both along with Nas, Santigold, 12th Planet, Dillon Francis, Michal Menert, and TOKiMONSTA. Other huge surprises are in store as Skrillex has also announced plans for a 4-show Mexico jaunt in December featuring a one-of-a-kind End Of The World event on 12/21/12 at the base of an indigenous temple.
