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.

Thando Tshoma, 26, Was born in Aliwal North in the Eastern Cape and grew up in the townships and surrounds of Cape Town. Now based in Johannesburg, the rhythmically fluid electronic and house music DJ and producer came to the attention of Bridges For Music in early 2014.

With a knack of producing work that can transport the listener to an alternate universe, IDM Mag recently dubbed Jazzuelle as "SA House Music's Best Kept Secret", where he also graced the cover of the April 2015 issue. Jazzuelle has released music under some of the world most respected labels, including Get Physical, Lazy Days Recordings, Atjazz Record Company (UK), Phat Elephant and more. He featured on Vinny Da Vinci's South African Music Award winning compilation 'Deep House Sounds 10’ and was a participant in the Redbull Music Academy Bass Camp in 2014. 

"I'm beyond excited to be playing at Glastonbury Festival and going to the UK for the first time! I can't wait to travel, network, play my set and learn as much as I can about the industry while I'm there. I'm also going to see Loco Dice and Fourtet again - I met them through Bridges for Music, which was one of the the most incredible experiences of my life. “
