Skrillex has always been about giving back to the fans. As his Full Flex Express train tour makes its way across Canada starting July 8th, they’ll be donating thousands of dollars worth of Pioneer music equipment to local youth music centers in each city. The tour has partnered with non-profit organization Bridges for Music (www.bridgesformusic.org
) to donate two CDJ 2000s and one DJM 900 mixer per show to a local youth organisation, and 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.
Kids from these youth organisations will also have access to a small demo on how to use the gear, and a tour during sound check to discover the "behind the scenes" of a show of this stature.
In addition, Bridges for Music is offering exclusive prizes to all supporters globally through their Urgency Network crowd-funding page. With a Bridges for Music donation, fans can enter to win a grand prize package to go VIP with Skrillex and attend any of his shows in North America (including US flights, accommodation and tickets) by purchasing perks like backstage passes to one of the Full Flex Express non-festival shows and can pick up other prizes including a limited edition Electric Family bracelet, a Jack Ü flexi-disc signed by both Skrillex and Diplo, or an exclusive video from Skrillex while helping build one of the most innovative schools in South Africa.
