Skrillex is a busy guy, making music, running a label, planning a train tour…

Skrillex’s Full Flex Express tour is coming to Ottawa, Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, and Pemberton. Skrillex, Diplo, Zeds Dead, ASAP Ferg, Tycho, Kiesza, Hundred Waters, Anna Lunoe, and Mija will perform.

Even though he’s in demand, Skrillex doesn’t forget to give back. He will donate two CDJ 2000s and one DJM 900 mixer to youth music centers at each stop on his tour. The Full Flex Express tour will also provide lessons on how to use the new equipment.

A portion of ticket sales will be donated to Bridges for Music towards the construction of a music school in South Africa.

Fans can also donate to enter to win a VIP package (flights, accommodation, and show tickets) or other items.

    Thanks for sharing this! I think it is so awesome that Skrillex is taking the time to donate DJ sets at every single stop. That, in my opinion, shows that he wants kids to have the option to learn how to mix music. In fact, it would be cool to see if any future DJs are able to come about because of this donated equipment. However, only time will be able to determine that.
