"Full Flex Express Tour" to Travel Across Canada with Skrillex, Grimes, Diplo
Published May 08, 2012Following last week's partial announcement, American dubstep kingpin Skrillex has delivered the details in full for his upcoming "Full Flex Express Tour." As the name hinted at, the trek will find Skrillex travelling the country by train, and he'll be joined by some notable buds, including Canuck experimental electro pop fave Grimes and producer extraordinaire Diplo.
As previously reported, the trip kicks off in Toronto on July 13, and a press release explains that the "festival event" will feature multiple stages, featuring other artists such as Pretty Lights, Tokimonsta, and KOAN Sound. You can see the detailed schedule down below.
The acts will all travel on a private passenger train together, with the route inspired by the 1970 "Festival Express" tour, which featured Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead and the Band travelling across Canada, as well as last year's "Railroad Revival" tour, which took Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes across U.S. tracks.
