Published Apr 01, 2015Longhaired EDM god Skrillex recently announced that he'll bring back the little engine that could, chug-a-chugging across Canada on the Full Flex Express. The event, which was cancelled in 2013, sees Skrills and his buddies shovelling coal to train across Canada, playing shows along the way. Today, more details on the event have emerged.
The event, which kicks off in Ottawa on July 8 and concludes in Pemberton on July 19, now has a full lineup. Skrillex will perform, of course, but rather than a solo set he'll appear alongside Diplo in their excellent Jack Ü project.
In addition, the fest will include appearances from Zeds Dead, A$AP Ferg, Tycho, Kiesza, Hundred Waters, Anna Lunoe and Mija. Along with the live performances, the train will see one of its cars transformed into a studio, so artists can collaborate while they're on the road.
