Skrillex, Diplo, Pretty Lights Team To Tour on a Train
Next stop, Dubstepville! Skrillex is teaming up with cutting-edge artists like Diplo, Pretty Lights and Grimes for the Full Flex Express tour, which will make its way across Canada this July.
The artists on the trek will travel to each of the six tour dates (beginning July 13 in Toronto) in a private passenger train, much like Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show did last year on the Railroad Revival tour. KOAN Sound and Tokimonsta round out the lineup for the Full Flex Express tour.
The train trip will immediately follow Skrillex's headlining set at this year's Camp Bisco festival in New York, and the electronic phenom is also set to perform at Bonnaroo next month. His "Bangarang" EP clocked in at No. 49 on last week's Billboard 200.
Here are the dates for the Full Flex Express tour:
July 13: Toronto, Ontario (Fort York)
July 14: Ottawa, Ontario (Ottawa Blues Fest)
July 15: Montreal, Quebec (Parc Jean Drapeau)
July 18: Winnipeg, Manitoba (Shaw Park)
July 20: Edmonton, Alberta (Kinsmen Park)
July 22: Vancouver, British Columbia (PNE Coliseum)
