As Digital Music News says, Skrillex is a busy guy, what with making music, running a label and planning the Full Flex Express Tour. But that doesn’t stop him from giving back and helping others.
Skrillex will be donating two CDJ 2000s and one DJM 900 mixer to a youth music center at each stop on his tour through Canada, as well as lessons at each center on how to use the equipment and a tour during sound check to see the behind-the-scenes action of a show of this magnitude. And as the tour is stopping at eight different locations, this is no small feat.
According to EDM World Magazine, “The tour has partnered with Bridges for Music, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating positive change in underprivileged communities in developing countries through electronic music and multimedia education. A portion of all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Bridges for Music’s fund for the construction of the Langa Music School in South Africa.”
Fans can also donate to win special prizes, including (but certainly not limited to) a VIP package, with with flights, accommodation, and tickets taken care of.
The Full Flex Express Tour will feature performances by Skrillex, Diplo, Zeds Dead, ASAP Ferg, Tycho, Kiesza, Hundred Waters, Anna Lunoe, and Mija.
