Inspired by Janis Joplin’s Canadian train tour in the 70’s, with The Gratefull Dead and The Band, Grammy winning artist Skrillex, and some notable friends are set to choo choo across Canada spreading love and bass on an intensely anticipated summer tour dubbed the Full Flex Express Tour...Skrillex - Bangarang feat Sirah by Skrillex
This past summer, Skrillex and friends climbed aboard a cruise ship in the Atlantic for a 3 day music festival called Holy Ship, complete with a stop at a private island for unbridled partying. Shortly thereafter, Skrillex and Diplo announced their intentions for a train tour across Canada, with the intention of re-imagining performances and tours, throwing practicality to the side in favour of simply enjoying the ride.
Diplo and Skrillex have invited some incredibly talented friends along; big bass duo Koan Sound, genre bending Pretty Lights, indie music’s sweetheart Grimes, and the enigmatic hip-hop producer Tokimonsta to name a few. The artists will be travelling on a private train, meeting fans at stops in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton, Vancouver and Winnipeg, each with its own festival, each expecting tens of thousands in attendance.
