Skrillex Reveals Full Flex Express Tour Charity Partnership With Bridges For Music
June 30, 2015 at 1:11 PM (PT)
SKRILLEX will be donating tens of thousands of dollars worth of PIONEER music equipment to local youth music centers in each city of his FULL FLEX EXPRESS tour across CANADA starting JULY 8th.
Kids from these youth organizations 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 massive tour. The tour has partnered with non-profit organization BRIDGES FOR MUSIC to donate two CDJ 2000s and one DJM 900 mixer per show, and a portion of all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to BRIDGES FOR MUSIC's fund for the construction of the LANGE MUSIC SCHOOL in SOUTH AFRICA.
In addition, BRIDGES FOR MUSIC is offering exclusive prizes to all supporters globally through their URGENCY NETWORK crowd-funding page. With a 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 U.S. flights, accommodation and tickets) by purchasing perks like backstage passes to one of the FULL FLEX EXPREESS non-festival shows and can pick up other prizes, including a limited edition ELECTRIC FAMILY bracelet, a JUACK Ü flexi-disc signed by both SKRILLEX and DIPLO, or an exclusive SKRILLEX video, while helping build one of the most innovative schools in SOUTH AFRICA.
