Skrillex, Pretty Lights, Diplo, Grimes and more will embark on an electronic music-themed trans-Canadian train tour this summer. Inspired by The Festival Express tour that took place in 1970 featuring Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, and The Band, the “Full Flex Express” tour will make stops across Canada in cities including Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg and more. Each stop will feature a festival event, taking places across multiple stages. The full tour itinerary is available below.
“We were really inspired when Mumford and Sons and Edward Sharpe and those guys did a train tour,” says Skrillex. “We wanted to do it as well and share this music with people across Canada. Just to do it and have fun”.
